WELCOME TO THE EUROPEAN CITY FACILITY - EUCF
Municipalities and local authorities are the driver of the European sustainable energy transition. With tremendous potential to build comprehensive sustainable energy investment programmes, they also play a key role in pooling smaller projects into larger investment portfolios and in mobilising significant financial resources required for the energy transition.
DESIGNED BY CITIES FOR CITIES
Set up under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation of the European Union, the EUCF will unlock this local potential and support local authorities and their groupings with tailor-made, fast and simplified financial support (in the form of EUR 60,000 lump sums) and related services to enable municipalities in Europe to developrelevant investment concepts related to the implementation of actions identified in their climate and energy action plans.
Successful applicants to the EUCF will use the lump sum to develop their investment concepts, which represents an initial step towards a fully-fledged business and financial plan. The ultimate objective is to build a substantial pipeline of sustainable energy investment projects across municipalities in Europe.
