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!
