“Tranformative Action program”: the potential of local and subnational climate action

Webinar series

The TAP is an inclusive and cooperative effort by networks of local and subnational governments to accelerate implementation of climate action of local and subnational governments.

This is to be done by scaling-up their direct investments and their increased engagement in national and global mechanisms, focusing on capacity building, technology transfer and access to climate finance. Specifically, the TAP will collect promising and transformative climate action projects and showcase them to potential financers as well as to national negotiators delegations at COP21.

TAP is launched and managed by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and will be presented at the COP21 Pavilion co-hosted by City of Paris and City of Bristol–European Green Capital 2015.

If you are interested in TAP and would like to learn more about the program before applying, please sign up to one of the following webinars!

During these TAP webinars a member of ICLEI’s TAP Team will briefly present the project and answer any questions you may have.

Community Energy Conference, 2015 – New Government, New Dawn?

Oxford, United Kingdom
Following the success of it's 2013 and 2014 national events, Co-operative Energy is pleased to announce its Community Energy Conference 2015. This year’s event is titled ‘New Government, New Dawn’ and will be jointly hosted with Community Energy England. The Conference will also be the marque launch event for Community Energy Fortnight 2015, which is also sponsored by Co-operative Energy.

The UK’s nascent community energy revolution picked up pace through 2014 and the early part of 2015, but what will be the impact of the emergence of a new Government? The UK’s Community Energy Strategy has recently been revitalised, but what will be the influence of changes to investor tax relief and the new approach of the FCA? More broadly, the EU is now progressing with its new Energy Union strategy which has the citizen at its centre, but will EU State Aid Guidelines restrict national support mechanisms?

These and other questions will be explored at what has become the UK’s largest and most exciting annual gathering of community energy practitioners.

Moreover, this year’s event will be free to attend to ensure that as many communities as possible can enjoy access to an unparalleled range of speakers and interactive sessions.

Current Topics To Be Discussed:
- How community energy in the UK can reach real scale
- Opportunities and barriers for community energy
- Experiences from Europe
- Prospects for the Community Energy Strategy
- Workshops: Working with & learning from others
- Workshops: Opportunities for community energy
- Successes we hope to report at next year’s Community Energy Conference

Guest speakers and full agenda will be announced shortly.

Sign Up for FREE today to reserve your space at what will be a truly fantastic and inspirational event.

CO-POWER @ Community Energy Fortnight 2015

United Kingdom
This Fortnight, jointly organised by the Community Energy Coalition in partnership with Cooperative Energy, will be an exciting opportunity to explore and celebrate how communities across the UK are generating, owning and saving energy.

From 5th to 20th of September, doors will be open to projects up and down the country – from seeing inside a wind turbine to building your own solar panel. You can get a chance to see local renewables projects up-close and meet the people who are directly benefitting from them. The Fortnight aims to bring communities together and inspire new energy projects.

Under the framework of the Fortnight, ICLEI Europe and Friends of the Earth are organising a CO-POWER workshop on the topic “Community Energy & Local Governments: capacity building on financial models - zooming in on ESCOs”.

This event (together with a second one that will take place in Poland this winter) is part of the current effort of focusing on capacity building and in engaging local governments in coalitions outside of the CO-POWER's project countries.

Local decision-makers, council planners, local government associations / networks and energy agencies are invited to participate in this free workshop which will take place on the 9th of September and will address the following questions:
- How can a local government invest in community energy? Why?
- How do you set up and ESCO?
- What are the barriers and how can they be overcome?
- How does one access funding for local climate and energy action? What models work?

The programme of the day is available on-line.
