18 new Hungarian members to the Covenant of Mayors

This summer, 18 South Transdanubian municipalities joined the Covenant of Mayors, agreeing on creating their local Sustainable Energy Action Plans. Energiaklub Cilmate Policy Institute, as an Associated Partner of the Covenant of Mayors, assisted and supported the municipalities in the accession process.

 

Local Sustainable Energy Action Plans are one of the most important keystones of future developments in the field of energy. Members of the Covenant are committed to reduce carbon emissions by at least 20% to foster the climate policy targets of the Union. Within a year after joining, members create Sustainable Energy Action Plans with measures to be taken, and realize them until 2020. Above others, action plans analyse heat and electricity consumption of municipal and private buildings, energy consumption of street-lighting and greenhouse gas emission of transport, and propose measures on how to reduce energy and fuel consumption with at least 20%.
