Why we joined!
Why join the Energy Cities network?
Because 75% of all energy consumption in Europe occurs in urban areas, local authorities more than ever have a crucial role to play. Taking action at local level will help you:
- reduce your energy consumption and energy bill whilst reducing local emissions and effluents,
- stimulate local growth by making use of local resources,
- be recognised as an innovative town/city.
All of this is possible! Energy Cities was established as an association of European local authorities in 1990 to allow all of this to happen.
