|IEE Funding Opportunities Mar09|
On 17 March 2009 the Agency, acting in collaboration with the Malta National Contact Point for the EU's Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP Malta NCP), the Malta-EU Steering & Action Committee (MEUSAC) and Local Councils Executive Secretaries Association (ASKLM), organised a joint information workshop to create awareness of the various energy related funding opportunities that exist for local councils, within and beyond the IEE programme.
The event also aimed at disseminating information about the 'Covenant of Mayors', which seeks to bring together European towns and cities in a permanent network to exchange and apply good practices to improve energy efficiency in the urban environment. This event provided a forum for debate and experience sharing and outlined various avenues that can be considered to pursue by local councils regarding energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. It served as well as a meeting platform to establish direct communication channels and set the base for further collaborations and joint projects between local councils.
