Lille (France) and Oujda (Morocco) won the 3rd prize at the PLATFORMAwards last year for their “Decentralised Cooperation Project for Sustainable Energy”.

Since 2016, the long-lasting successful partnership between Lille and Oujda is focusing on energy policies and strategies of the two cities. It aims to improve the energy efficiency of the two cities’ buildings and promote the use of renewable energies. The two local authorities have developed a cross-sectoral approach that brings on board a wide range of actors (public structures, economic actors, academics, civil society).

Most of the actions carried out are based on exchanges and training between equivalent structures in France and Morocco.

The project has received the support of the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Moroccan Ministry of the Interior within the framework of the joint support fund for Franco-Moroccan decentralised cooperation.
