    A recipe for sustainability: report from STEER event

    On 1-2 July, ManagEnergy brought together representatives of the European Commission with leaders of completed and ongoing STEER projects—IEE-supported projects that promote sustainable energy use in transport (increased energy efficiency, new and renewable fuel sources, and the take-up of alternatively propelled vehicles) and strengthen the knowledge of local management agencies in the transport field.

    Four events to consider in October

    ManagEnergy is coorganising four exciting networking meetings in October: two on cycling—in Venice and Copenhagen—and two in Brussels on the economics and financing of sustainable energy projects. To find out more and to register for these events, click on the links below:

  • Presenting the 2014 ManagEnergy Award winner and finalists

    The ManagEnergy Award is given to public authorities and energy agencies at the local and regional level that have shown outstanding achievements in the area of renewable energy, energy efficiency and clean transport. The five finalists for this year's award were presented at the 2014 ManagEnergy Annual Conference in Brussels on June 24. The winner—the Commune of Kisielice, Poland—was announced at a special ceremony.

  • Financing solutions for local governments

    Local authorities are taking an increasingly active role in bringing about a clean energy future. Their biggest worry: how to finance their efforts. To learn more about the increasing diversity of funding options available to local governments, ManagEnergy will be in Paris later this week at the exciting Financing Urban Development Conference hosted by the Resolutions to Fund Cities program. 

  • Highlights from the 2014 ManagEnergy Conference

    The 2014 ManagEnergy Annual Conference was held on the morning of 24 June, the first session of EU Sustainable Energy Week 2014. Jointly organised with the Covenant of Mayors and Smart Cities & Communities, this year’s conference was once again very well attended (more than 350 participants plus web streaming) and focused on the problem of energy poverty, the role of local and regional authorities in addressing it through energy efficiency and other means, and innovative financing solutions for sustainable energy projects at the local and regional level. 

  • Flemish Brabant municipalities join sustainable energy transition

    Showing the commitment of local leaders to achieving sustainable energy transition, the mayors of 57 municipalities in the Belgian province of Flemish Brabant (Vlaams-Brabant) will sign the Covenant of Mayors on 25 June 2014.

Congratulations to Kisielice, Poland, winner of the 2014 ManagEnergy Award!

The Commune of Kisielice in Poland has used the finance from wind farms on its unused agricultural land to invest in sustainable energy generation and heating systems for the community. The Commune has achieved energy self sufficiency while providing revenue for its farmers who supply waste farm residues for the biogas plant.
