The aim of the project is to support European initiative entitled “Covenant of Mayors” through strengthening the network of its Supporting Structures, helping selected municipalities in the development and implementation of Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) and promotion of the Covenant among local self-governments.

It is planned that as a result of project implementation 180 new municipalities will join the Covenant of Mayors, over 60 municipalities will be fully supported in the development and implementation of SEAPs and 34 new Supporting Structures will be established. Moreover, project results will include strengthening local authorities’ capacity to implement sustainable energy strategies and Supporting Structures’ capacity to effectively support smallest signatories of the Covenant of Mayors, which will be achieved inter alia through special training seminars for municipalities and Supporting Structures and training materials developed by project partners.
