What is the project?

COOPENERGY is a three-year European funded project (co-funded through the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme) aiming to help regional (county) and local public authorities develop joint action plans by using Multi-Level Governance agreements. These agreements could range from informal meetings to more robust partnerships and Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) and will ensure regional and local authorities are working together to the greatest effect to deliver on the EU 20/20/20 targets.

By developing and delivering these Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) in partnership, public authorities can avoid duplication, cut inefficiencies and share resources effectively to help their residents and communities make the transition to a low carbon society and economy.

Our overall project objective is to contribute to the EU 2020 targets on energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. Read more about the specific targets we are working towards in our common performance indicators document (246 KB).

The specific project objectives are:

  • Identifying and learning from the good practice of others who have successfully collaborated on sustainable energy planning. An interactive good practice database will be produced with examples from across Europe
  • Developing and testing local Multi-Level Governance agreements to show how public authorities can work in partnership to deliver results
  • Implementing and evaluating joint actions and solutions to demonstrate success
  • Celebrating success, sharing experience and transferring learning within the partnership and across Europe
  • Promoting key European policies and initiatives (such as the Covenant of Mayors) that can help public authorities plan sustainable energy projects and actions in partnership
