Recruiting the C4S cities
In this first project phase, municipalities in the target countries were given the opportunity to join the project. We now can boast having on board 29 forward-thinking local authorities and an additional 4 front-running agglomerations of municipalities. Each C4S national partner has already begun active work to help up to 4 target cities per country to each implement EnMS and take part in the C4S energy management competition.
Information is also being gathered from them about the obstacles and drivers they experience for developing, implementing and upgrading SEAPs and SECAPs in each city. This is being done in parallel to developing the C4S energy management guidelines, which will soon be available to help all cities interested in developing their own EnMS.
