Toolbox for local governments

When developing sustainable energy planning, as for instance Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs), local authorities are often searching for guidance and advice.

As it is the purpose of the STRATEGO project to support local authorities in developing or further improving these actions, we would like to share with you the Toolbox of Methodologies on Climate and Energy (http://toolbox.climate-protection.eu/). The tool allows to search, add and rate resources to support local action.

Furthermore, we also invite you to take a look at the mapping exercise as well as the identification of thermal projects that we have performed in the framework of the STRATEGO project.

Other useful resources include:

  • 6 regional plans for renewable heating/cooling development in 6 European regions (Castilla y Leon – ES, Emilia Romagna – IT, Riga – LV, Rhodope – BG, Western Macedonia – GR and Salzburg – AT), as well as regional heating and cooling maps and guidelines developed in the framework of the EU project RES H/C SPREAD (www.res-hc-spread.eu)
  • 6 regional strategies for deploying renewable district heating and cooling in 4 countries (DE, ES, IE and IT), more than 20 local case studies, documents and guidelines developed in the framework of the EU project SmartReFlex (www.smartreflex.eu)
  • The CELSIUS Toolbox, containing a roadmap for developing district heating and cooling systems, technical information, social and economic aspects, existing demonstration projects and experiences of CELSIUS cities, developed under the CELSIUS project (http://celsiuscity.eu/)
