Event "Energy and Climate Data for Municipalities of the Future"

Veranstaltung „Energie- und Klimadaten für die Gemeinde der Zukunft“

On May 20th, 2021, the Austrian Energy Agency hosted the online-Event “Energy and Climate Data for Municipalities of the Future”. The event was held within the scope of the H2020 project CoME EASY and addressed municipality representatives from all over Austria. During the event, assorted tools for the establishment of energy balances and emission inventories as well as the planning of climate protection measures were presented to 70 participants. Among the introduced tools were those developed within the CoME EASY project.

Alongside the Austrian Energy Agency, the Salzburg Institute for Spatial Planning, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna, the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology and the Covenant of Mayors contributed with their own presentations. In order to light the way into this challenging and fascinating topic, representatives of the cities of Bregenz and Weiz reported their experiences with the creation of emission inventories.


Am 20. Mai 2021 veranstaltete die Österreichische Energieagentur im Rahmen des H2020-Projekts CoME EASY das Online-Informationsevent „Energie- und Klimadaten für die Gemeinde der Zukunft“ für Gemeindevertreter*innen aus ganz Österreich. Während des Events wurden den 70 Teilnehmer*innen verschiedene Tools zur Erstellung von Energiebilanzen und Emissionsinventaren sowie zur Planung von Klimaschutzmaßnahmen anhand von energie- und klimabezogenen Daten vorgestellt; darunter die im Rahmen des Projekts CoME EASY entwickelten Tools.

Neben der Österreichischen Energieagentur beteiligten sich das Salzburger Institut für Raumordnung und Wohnen, die BOKU Wien, das Bundesministerium für Klimaschutz, Umwelt, Energie, Mobilität, Innovation und Technologie sowie das Büro des Bürgermeisterkonvents mit eigenen Beiträgen am Event. Vertreter der beiden Stadtgemeinden Bregenz und Weiz berichteten von ihren Erfahrungen mit der Erstellung von Emissionsinventaren, um den Teilnehmer*innen und ihren Gemeinden den Einstieg in dieses herausfordernde und spannende Feld zu erleichtern.

CoME EASY Ambassador Municipalities

Statement of Lausanne's Energy Delegate on CoME EASY

The CoME EASY Ambassador Municipalities play a crucial role in the implementation of the project: they represent the target group of the CoME EASY tools package and are, furthermore, the testing bodies that provide important feedback on the applicability, usability and the added value of the tools package.

During the last months, Ambassador Municipalities of seven European countries tested the tools and developed SECAPs (Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans) according to CoM-requirements by using the tools. One of the CoME EASY Ambassadors is the Swiss City of Lausanne, an ambitious eea gold city which at the same time is committed to the Covenant of Mayors and therefore has a thorough understanding of the respective strengths and challenges of the two initiatives from years of first-hand experience. Georges Ohana, the City of Lausanne’s Energy Delegate describes his experiences with the CoME EAsy tools and shares his opinion on their relevance for cities and municipalities in this interview:

Interview on CoME EASY with the energy advisor of the Ambassador City of Lörrach (DE)

The German city of Lörrach is one of the 18 Ambassador Municipalities that tested the CoME EASY supportive tools and benefitted from the project's outputs.

In the video below, Lörrach's energy advisor talks about the city's long-term commitment to the European Energy Award, the more quantitatively focused approach of the Covenant of Mayors and the benefit of multiple commitment, facilitated through the CoME EASY tools, for municipal energy policy management and implementation.

The interview is in German language with English subtitles.

Brest Métropole: Overview on the Ambassador's energy and climate actions

Brest Métropole is one the CoME EASY Ambassadors that first tested the supportive tools package. Based on the tools it developed a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan compliant with CoM requirements. 

The following video provides an overview on Brest Métropole's ambitious pathway towards a more  sustainable energy and climate performance on its territory. 

Interview with Vienne-Condrieu Agglomération's energy-climate project manager

Vienne-Condrieu Agglomération's energy-climate project manager Mustapha L'Haoua explains in the following video-interview how the CoME EASY tools enhanced the agglomeration's air-energy-climate policy in terms of supporting the EEA diagnosis as well as the development of an action plan to meet the 2030 targets and of a strategy to 2050 that is consistent with the agglomeration’s Territorial Air- Energy-Climate Plan.
