Local authorities are now becoming key players in the energy and climate transition.
Article 8 of the French Law on the Green Economy’s Energy Transition (LTECV) is devoted to “energy transition throughout the region”. Beyond reinforcing the role of local authorities as leaders in the energy transition in their regions,this law has extended the requirement that a Territorial Air Energy Plan (PCAET) be implemented in every EPCI (a Public Establishment for Intermunicipal Cooperation) of more than 20,000 inhabitants. Assessments made regarding the enactment and implementation of these policies have seen their scopes expanded, which has had a direct impact on the creation of action programs and their implementation.
The Association Bilan Carbone (ABC), in partnership with the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), are seekung, using the community’s responses to the following questionnaire, to identify best practices , as the well as what regional and local authorities need in order to reduce GHG emissions, both in completing their GHG assessments and to successfully act on the results of these assessments.
The results of this questionnaire will be published, by the end of the year, in a GHG Best Practices Guide for French Local and Regional Authorities which will be available free of charge on the ABC’s website. If possible, the guide will be presented at the next European Energy Transition Conference, which will take place from January 30 to February 1, 2018 in Geneva.
Your image, an update on your energy-climate policy and a description of one or two of your best actions will be included as a fifteen to thirty minute presentation, as applicable.
