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.

    GRANADA es Energía
    Category: Other
    Description: GRANADA es energía:On the project the main activities are the installation of near 70 kWp/year of photovoltaic power, some other Biomass facilities, and the change of near 12.400 VSAP lamps/year (which are more efficient) instead of VM lamps on public lighting and public buildings. On the first year the estimated energy consumtion reduction is therefore 1.337.600 KWh/year. Also the estimated renewable electricity produced is 134.000 KWh/year, and renewable heat produced of 50.000 KWh/year. Next years the energy reduction and production will be double the second year, triple the third year and quadruple on the fourth year. On the first year the estimated reduction in CO2 emissions is therefore 1.465.830 kgCO2/year. The Plan which foresees a budget of near 1.500.000 euro/year on the local municipalities of the Region, to improve the use of efficient machines, develope R.E. facilities, and inform local population.
