ENERGY CITIES' PROPOSALS FOR THE ENERGY TRANSITION OF CITIES AND TOWNS

1.7 Prepare an Energy Transition Action Plan
Empowering local players

The problem at hand


One of the main difficulties of the energy transition is to align short, medium and long-term objectives. Sharing visions of a low energy city with a high quality of life for all by 2050 is easy, as the time horizon is still a long way off and everyone understands that the current situation is no longer sustainable.
However, it is more difficult to agree on the strategies that need to be implemented to get there as they involve changing trajectories and, therefore, habits. This disturbs the relations between players and leads to inertia.
Things become even more complicated when it comes to voting next year’s budget. All the obstacles inherited from our mindsets and practices, which have more to do with past inertia than future dynamics, come to the fore.
This is why an Energy Transition Action Plan is needed.

Proposal


The Energy Transition Action Plan serves as a link between the long-term vision and annual budgets.
This 5 to 10 year action plan goes much further than just integrating quantitative energy data that will be used to monitor energy and CO2 emission indicators. It also ensures that the desired trajectory is integrated into sectoral policies whilst being translated into policies and actions as well as human and financial resources. In short, it gives the trajectory consistency.

Conditions for success


  • Having a clear, shared and documented vision of the course to be taken.
  • Running the process under the authority of the Mayor who has the legitimacy and authority to enforce this course.
  • Preparing the action plan as a tool for co-ordinating and implementing a maximum of the Proposals from this booklet.
  • Making the plan an annual and multi-annual budgeting tool.
