MODEL (lead)

The MODEL (Management Of Domains related to Energy in Local authorities) project aims at helping Central and Eastern European local authorities to become models for their citizens. The main objective is to improve the practical capacities of local authoritiess and/or local energy agencies to better deal with intelligent energy issues.

To improve the quality of life of their citizens through bold sustainable energy initiatives, decision makers from 6 pilot cities in Armenia, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine decided to follow the steps of 43 pilot cities from 8 New Member States (Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovenia) and Croatia.

As for their predecessors, they will develop actions to encourage citizens, local decision makers and stakeholders in taking their own initiatives, thus preparing the ground for sustainable energy communities.

What is Energy Cities’ role in MODEL?

As the project coordinator, Energy Cities supports these new pilot cities and their national partners in particular for the implementation of 7 practical actions:

  • Developing basics of local sustainable energy policies,
  • Organising an energy team or unit within the local administration,
  • Setting up an energy monitoring system and database,
  • Developing a local energy action plan,
  • Identifying and using innovative financing mechanisms for energy efficiency investments,
  • Improving the communication of sustainable energy issues with citizens,
  • Undertaking demonstrative low-energy refurbishment of two public buildings in two advanced cities).
