The EU Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy initiative brings together thousands of local governments voluntarily committed to support implementation of the EU 40% CO2 reduction target, by the development and implementation of Sustainable Energy Climate Action Plans.
CoM-DeP bridges the gap between planning and practical implementation of the action plans through grant financing (approx. 25 million EUR) for 33 energy efficiency demonstration projects in the EaP region, as well as by providing professional support to the 34 signatory local governments during implementation of these projects.
Beneficiaries are citizens of 34 municipalities. Main beneficiaries are over 12.000 children and over 1.800 staff in 23 kindergartens and 12 schools, over 32.000 residents of apartment buildings, over 22.000 users and staff of public buildings and over 400.000 public services users.
