NET-COM

What is NET-COM?

NET-COM : NETworking the Covenant Of Mayors

The NET-COM project aims at empowering local authorities (at both political and administrative levels) to implement successfully their current (or future) Covenant engagements. Thus, NET-COM directly supports the EU’s Energy and Climate Package targets.

NET-COM started on the 1st of June 2011 and will end in November 2013. The project is carried out by a consortium of 12 partners from 12 different European countries.

In each country Covenant Networking Platforms will be created to ensure:

  • Better communication and exchanges among local authorities (Covenant Signatories or not) which would improve their own capacities and effectiveness to achieve the Covenant goals.
  • Better communication, exchanges and synergies between local authorities and key actors such as public institutions (ministries, national/regional agencies, regions, provinces, associations of local and regional authorities) and any other stakeholders (businesses, NGOs, associations, etc.) willing to support local authorities in their efforts to achieve the Covenant objectives.

Furthermore, the continuous capacity building of the European, national and regional networks of local authorities will be crucial for the coming years. NET-COM will set up a permanent cooperation among the networks in order to benchmark their experiences, practices, tools and working methods.

What is Energy Cities doing in NET-COM?

As project leader, Energy Cities provides the overall coordination & management and ensures contact with the European Commission-EACI.
Energy Cities is also in charge of:

  • Ensuring a common understanding and structure for the 12 Networking Platforms,
  • Developing the Covenant of Mayors Club and Networking Platform in France,
  • Communication and dissemination activities towards European local authorities and Covenant of Mayors supporters and territorial coordinators,
  • Developing a European Book of Recipes for Covenant supporters and territorial coordinators to ensure that they communicate and disseminate efficiently and innovatively the Covenant of Mayors. The Book will also guarantee that these structures will easily find all the appropriate information they might need to ensure an efficient support to the local authorities they collaborate with in the framework of the Covenant of Mayors. The 12 associations of local authorities are Covenant of Mayors supporters.
