Alicante Province earmarks €4 million to support Covenant of Mayors implementation
As a Covenant Coordinator, the Provincial Council of Alicante is committed to supporting the implementation of the Covenant of Mayors within its territorial jurisdiction, notably by assisting signatories with the development and implementation of their Sustainable Energy Action Plan. Last June, the President of the Provincial Council, Luisa Pastor, announced the earmarking of €4 million for the implementation of a “Provincial Energy Saving Plan” aimed at supporting scarcely populated municipalities in delivering their Covenant of Mayors commitments.

This, the Council President pointed out, will serve the objective of “assisting municipalities in achieving economic stability and maintaining their infrastructures in such a complicated and difficult period". The Provincial Plan’s main focus is the financing of investments that will help reduce the energy bills of municipalities and make municipal facilities more efficient and better regulated.

Only municipalities which have signed the Covenant of Mayors and developed their Emission Inventories and Sustainable Energy Action Plans are eligible for such aid. This is already the case of 70 out of the 103 municipalities which have joined the initiative. Looking ahead, the administration has expressed political will to earmark another €3 million for the 2014-2015 budget years and thereby ensure continuity in the plan.
