Local authorities often face problems when implementing and monitoring Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs). In order to provide technical support to municipalities, a half-day capacity building workshop is being organised on the 27th of November 2015 at 10am at INNOVATHENS - Hub of Entrepreneurship and Innovation of Technopolis City of Athens.
The workshop is being organised within the framework of DATA4ACTION, a project co-funded by the "Intelligent Energy Europe” programme of the European Commission, which aims to facilitate public authorities’ access to reliable energy data. EPTA SA Environmental Consultants – Engineers is the Greek partner of the DATA4ACTION consortium, a consortium with partners from 11 European countries.
The workshop aims to increase the capacity of municipalities in implementing and monitoring SEAPs. Emphasis will be given in Progress Based Indicators and Monitoring tools for SEAPs. The workshop will also raise awareness on the creation of an Energy Observatory, incorporated within the Technical Chamber of Greece’s structure (TCG) Funding opportunities in the new programming period (2014-2020) for implementing SEAP actions will be presented, along with two case studies. The latter will focus on the experience of two municipalities that have developed and submitted SEAPs and monitoring reports to the Covenant of Mayors. Finally participating local authorities will be given the opportunity to express their interest to be further supported by Data4Action and will be asked to identify and propose at least two concrete actions to be monitored.
