Cities on the Frontline of the Energy Crisis: The Covenant of Mayors Europe 2023 Conference

Time: 9.30 - 13.00

Faced with the energy crisis, local authorities have once again shown their willingness to respond. On top of delivering ambitious local climate solutions, they put in place immediate low-cost actions to reduce energy demand in public facilities and increased the share of renewables while supporting the most vulnerable households and local business. 

Drawing from examples of measures tackling the energy crisis while protecting residents in their territories, this high-level event will be an opportunity to showcase what the current local response to the energy crisis is. It will also be the chance to reflect on what support European institutions and national gov-ernments can give to further strengthen these efforts in the mid-term.
