Technical Assistance to Greek municipalities of Green-Twinning project on Sustainable Energy Action Plan development and implementation

EXERGIA participates in the Green-Twinning project which is financed by Intelligent Energy Europe programme and aims at strengthening the capacity of public authorities towards fulfilling their Covenant of Mayors obligations.

EXERGIA has undertaken the support of Ilion, Ilioupoli, Nea Smyrni, Agioi Anargyroi – Kamatero, Agios Dimitrios, Paiania in developing and implementing their Sustainable Energy Action Plans and in concluding twinning agreements with experienced Spanish municipalities.

In the framework of this project, EXERGIA organized recently a two-day training course in Krakow in the presence of 35 trainees from Greek, Slovenian, Polish, Romanian and Bulgarian municipalities. The training course concerned the implementation of sustainable energy actions and focused on the process, successful case studies and innovative financing mechanisms. Several round table discussions and hands-on training on the actions implementation process took place during the course. A study tour was also organized in Niepołomice town, which is one of the first Polish cities that joined the Covenant of Mayors initiative and has since implemented many sustainable energy actions.
