The aim of the debate is to present and discuss new opportunities under the next 2014-2020 multiannual financial period enabling Covenant of Mayors signatory cities to realise local energy efficiency and renewable energy investments, committed within their sustainable energy action plans (SEAPs).  The most efficient approaches enabling a shift towards a low carbon economy tested during the previous programming periods will be showcased. New and innovative approaches will be discussed, including partnerships with citizens, private sector and financial institutions. Positive effect of technical and methodological support as well as networking facilitated by provinces, regions and cities’ associations will also be demonstrated.
