New EC Guidebook on how to develop a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) in South Mediterranean Cities

Friday, 10 October 2014 15:05

The European Commission has published a guidebook on ‘How to develop a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) in South Mediterranean Cities’ aiming at making energy efficiency and climate change mitigation measures relevant, achievable and compelling to local authorities in the southern Mediterranean countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia).

This publication also aims to enhance the competitiveness of municipalities and ensure their economic development while reducing dependence on energy imports and fossil fuels through the implementation of energy efficiency, renewables and other well-planned climate change mitigation actions at the local level.

The guidebook provides detailed guidance to develop an effective Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) in four phases: initiation, planning, implementation, monitoring and reporting. The choice and sequence of actions can vary according to the policies and measures already in place. This flexibility allows local authorities to develop a SEAP coherent with and effective for their local circumstances and objectives.
