Covenant Coordinators are public authorities that are in a position to provide strategic guidance, technical and financial support to Covenant of Mayors signatories and municipalities signing up to it.
Alongside financial assistance, Covenant Coordinators typically support signatories in conducting a CO2 emission inventory and/or a climate risk assessment, as well as in preparing and implementing their Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans.
- Covenant Territorial Coordinators are decentralised authorities, such as regions, provinces or grouping of local authorities,
- Covenant National Coordinators are national public bodies such as ministries or national energy agencies.
The European Commission recognises them as important allies to support Covenant of Mayors signatories to meet their commitments and increase the impact of the Covenant.

Description: The programme was launched in 2009. It aims at encouraging municipalities and smes to carry out Energy efficiency investments by providing financial assistance to their initiatives. The mechanism is a “call for proposal” aimed at local authorities and smes. Proposals have been evaluated on the basis of: - tecnical level of the project; - quality of the efficiency level attained; - replicability of the projects on a provincial scale. Awarded projects concern: - energy audit in public buildings; - initiatives for promotion of Energy savings; - instalment of fotovoltaic plants. The programme has entailed a positive financial result. With an amount of approximately EURO 1.9 million in grants, more than 30 projects carried out by local authorities have been financed. Contribution ranges from 20% to 80% of costs. As a result total investment amounts to EUR 7.4 millions. As to the environmental impact, the estimated saving is of around 500 TEP/year with a total of around 1500 tons of saved CO2.
