In this second round, an even larger number of cities will be selected to benefit from tailor-made, fast and simplified support and access the grant of €60,000 to develop their investment concept - an initial step towards a fully-fledged business and financial plan.
The call for applications will be open from 29 March - 31 May.
All information including the revised guidelines for applicants and the eligibility criteria will be available on the EUCF website soon.
The EUCF team encourages cities across the EU to identify their sustainable energy projects, get in touch with their country experts and consult the website and / or helpdesk for any questions regarding the eligibility of their application.
Therefore, the team encourages cities to start identifying the most suitable sustainable energy projects and to get in touch with the respective country experts in March. In a second step, the documents should be prepared and checked.
Last but not least: Do not wait for the last minute to upload and check your documents and make sure the country expert has enough time to double-check your documents!
