Illustration Covenant Coordinators

Covenant Coordinators are public authorities that are in a position to provide strategic guidance, technical and financial support to Covenant of Mayors signatories and municipalities signing up to it.

Alongside financial assistance, Covenant Coordinators typically support signatories in conducting a CO2 emission inventory and/or a climate risk assessment, as well as in preparing and implementing their Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans.

  • Covenant Territorial Coordinators are decentralised authorities, such as regions, provinces or grouping of local authorities,
  • Covenant National Coordinators are national public bodies such as ministries or national energy agencies.

The European Commission recognises them as important allies to support Covenant of Mayors signatories to meet their commitments and increase the impact of the Covenant.

    EURONET 50-50 European Network of Education Centre
    Category: Awareness raising
    Description: Education centres have a huge potential for energy savings and encourage more sustainable practices. Nevertheless, these buildings usually lack of a specific energy policy. With this in mind, Barcelona Provincial Council launched on May 2009 the Euronet 50/50 project that has received the support of the Intelligent Energy Europe program, engaging nine countries around Europe. The project seeks to apply the 50/50 methodology that has already been tested in many German schools to 50 educational centres, creating a European network of schools aiming for energy savings and fighting against climate change. A main objective is to help pupils and teachers to reduce energy use, mainly by changing some habits and practices. The purpose of 50/50 concept is to share economic incentives for saving energy between the schools and the manager of the school building (e.g. City Council). The basis of the 50/50 concept is that 50% of energy savings achieved from the energy efficiency measures taken by the pupils and teachers are returned through a financial payout. The other 50% of financial savings will be a net saving for the public authority that pays the bills. At least 50 primary schools will be engaged in the project benefiting from the methodology and the educational materials developed, from an energy audit carried out in every school and from a space in the network website to share best practices and interact with other schools.
