The project Bridging European and Local Climate Action (BEACON) is a multi-level governance project promoting climate action and facilitating an exchange between national networks and governments as well as municipalities and schools in Europe. It is financed via the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) a support programme of the German Ministry for the Environment (BMU).

BEACON has built a broad network : 34 partner municipalities and 55 partner schools from Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Greece, Portugal, Bulgaria and Germany are engaged in the exchanges of experience and knowledge. The project team will provide the municipalities with capacity building and technical support through coaching and multi-country workshops. Partner schools will receive on-site visits and introductory workshops on energy savings. In addition, five city partnerships are supported in cooperation on climate change mitigation. Furthermore, European experts identified good practices for national emission reduction policy instruments and published 15 case studies based on an EU-wide analysis for the buildings, transport, small industrial installations and agriculture sectors. The studies can already be downloaded from the BEACON website.

All municipalities participating in the project will come together for two European municipal conferences (presumably in 2019 and 2021) to present their commitment and network with others.

What is Energy Cities doing for BEACON ?

Energy Cities contributes primarily to the conceptual design of all tasks related to the preparation, organisation, implementation and follow-up of exchange with municipalities such as participation in the thematic workshops and/or in advising local communities. Energy Cities participates in the municipal conferences and contributes to their content as necessary.

Energy Cities is in charge of two of the five selected municipal climate partnerships, namely one German-Polish (Schwäbisch Hall and Zamość) and the German-Romanian partnership (Arnsberg and Alba Iulia).
Furthermore, Energy Cities may also be involved in the selection of good practices and other thematic issues across all APs. Our network also participates in the knowledge management and public relations efforts throughout the project.
