Recommendations for an Effective and Inclusive Clean Energy Transition Sub-Programme within LIFE 2021-2027 - December 2018 Recommendations for an Effective and Inclusive Clean Energy Transition Sub-Programme within LIFE 2021-2027 - December 2018

Cities, Regions and their Energy Agencies are striving to accelerate their energy and environmental transition that is a driving force for innovation, job creation, growth, social inclusion and overall territorial development. Within the context of the proposed changes within the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027, and specifically the creation of a LIFE subprogramme on the Clean Energy Transition, the European Networks FEDARENE, EUROCITIES, Energy Cities and Climate Alliance carefully considered the opportunities that these changes present to local/regional authorities and their energy agencies.

The new energy market design : how the EU can support energy communities and citizens to participate in the energy transition - August 2018 The new energy market design : how the EU can support energy communities and citizens to participate in the energy transition - August 2018

The EU is poised to set an unprecedented standard by formalizing the role of citizens and communities in Europe’s energy transition. By 2050, almost half of all EU households could be involved in producing renewable energy, about 37% of which could come through involvement in an energy community.1 However, the market design initiative must set strong rules to acknowledge, enable and provide rights to citizens that want to be active customers or participate in energy communities.

What Europe’s local leaders would like to see in the EU 2021-2027 budget to support energy transition - Position paper 22.02.2018 What Europe’s local leaders would like to see in the EU 2021-2027 budget to support energy transition - Position paper 22.02.2018

The EU is soon expected to draft the outline of its next budget – the 2021-2027 Multi-Annual Financial Framework – in a context where its unity and stability have been shaken by the Brexit and are further put into question by regional tensions within its member states, with the recent example of the Catalonian crisis. Making Europe more united, but also stronger and more democratic, as per President Juncker’s recent commitment, is thus becoming a pressing challenge which should guide the orientations of the future budget.

An EU budget to make energy citizens a reality An EU budget to make energy citizens a reality

This paper sketches a creative policy vision for how the next MFF could best unlock innovative financing and address specific barriers faced by energy citizens and community power projects wishing to invest in their own small scale RES projects. The solutions advocated in this paper involve two pillars. The first is the creation of an Energy Citizens Facility, or targeted financing programme involving the pooling of a set aside across several existing funds within the MFF, and creating an EU enabling framework to unlock innovative financing, in a geographically equitable way across the Union. The second pillar involves crafting both new ex-ante conditionalities, and new incentive structures within the MFF, to encourage the identification and removal of regulatory, and administrative barriers hindering small scale RES deployment at national level.

Cities at the forefront of climate action : ACHIEVING THE PARIS CLIMATE GOALS THROUGH THE EFFORT SHARING REGULATION - Policy Briefing, October 2017 Cities at the forefront of climate action : ACHIEVING THE PARIS CLIMATE GOALS THROUGH THE EFFORT SHARING REGULATION - Policy Briefing, October 2017

The contribution of cities and regions in reaching the European climate and energy targets is already significant. Yet, much more is possible with an enabling, stable and ambitious policy framework and effective access to financing. A strong Effort Sharing Regulation - without loopholes - can support and incentivise the uptake, replication and upscaling of local climate and energy actions. Creating the right conditions to enable climate efforts to propel will moreover lead to numerous co-benefits and a better quality of life for the millions of urban residents.

Cap sur les ressources locales ! Vers une nouvelle gouvernance de l’Union de l’énergie Cap sur les ressources locales ! Vers une nouvelle gouvernance de l’Union de l’énergie

La gouvernance du grand projet de l’Union de l’energie est le cadre à travers lequel les États membres seront invités à faire état de leurs progrès sur la réalisation des objectifs énergie-climat 2030, ainsi que la conception des politiques associées. Quel rôle devrait être accordé aux autorités locales dans ce contexte ? Pouvons-nous encore compter encore sur un processus de prises de décisions centralisé quand tout en se déplaçant vers l’avenir, le système énergétique décentralisé alors que le système énergétique lui-même ne l’est plus ? Dans cette publication, Energy Cities fournit des indications et des orientations possibles sur la façon de revoir le cadre de gouvernance fondé sur une approche « penser local d’abord".
