The new project on capacity building for EU cities and regions
PROSPECT+, is a capacity building H2020 project for cities and regions that follows and elaborates on the outcomes of the successfully completed project PROSPECT. The announcement of this project comes with a great excitement to continue the support of EU cities and regions on their way to adopt energy efficiency practices and policies.
PROSPECT implemented a peer learning programme for local and regional authorities to exchange knowledge and experience on how to implement their sustainable energy and climate action plans using innovative financing schemes. Through the project, 149 local and regional authorities and 46 energy agencies and networks were able to learn from their peers in order to implement their own sustainable practices and investment plans.
The highly significant impact and visibility of PROSPECT enabled the development of an even more competitive project, PROSPECT+ which will continue the peer learning focusing on 5 learning modules: 1. public buildings, 2. private buildings, 3. public lighting, 4. transport, and 5. cross sectoral.
PROSPECT+ will build on the existing project PROSPECT to enable capacity building in regional and local authorities in order to finance and implement effective and efficient sustainable energy plans, including their proper monitoring and verification.
The upgraded capacity-building programme will promote synergies with local plans and facilitate city decision-making processes regarding the implementation of energy efficiency measures.
Over 200 EU cities in at least 20 EU MS are expected to improve their capacities regarding implementation of projects from SECAPs and similar sustainable plans through the PROSPECT+ capacity-building programme.
The first call for applications will be open from November 2021 to January 2022.
