European City Facility announces the first call of proposals to an audience of 1000+ people !

During a successful webinar with not less than 1000+ registrations, the calls for applications have been announced! The first round of applications will open on 25 May with a deadline on 2 October! This round will be followed by 3 more calls for applications in the years 2021 and 2022.

During its Launch Webinar on 7 April, the ground-breaking initiative, that will support municipalities (local authorities) and their groupings from the EU-27 and UK to develop investment concepts for accelerating the implementation of their energy and climate action plans, announced its first call for proposals: 25 May 2020 to 2 October 2020.

The large number of registrations proves once more that municipalities across Europe are in need of initiatives taking into account the barriers particularly small - and medium-sized municipalities are facing: limited human and financial resources, lack of experience and expertise in developing investment packages, and generally conservative approaches to project financing. Against this backdrop, the EUCF steps up to support local investments in sustainable energy.

The EUCF-Team is happy to acknowledge such great interest amongst European cities and looks forward to receiving many applications in the upcoming months!
