Seap Alps

Sustainable Energy Action Plans for Alpine communities

SEAP_Alps connected municipalities in the Alpine region, with a focus on integrating adaptation to climate change into municipal Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs). The project, which promoted sustainable energy planning at the local level through the sharing of a common methodology among partners, was specifically geared towards local authorities interested in joining the Covenant of Mayors and thus ties in well with Climate Alliance’s activities in the Covenant.

In the framework of SEAP_Alps, Climate Alliance led the advanced training of project partners on a range of relevant topics in order to guarantee optimal support for the local implementation of an integrated approach. Climate Alliance also built a multilingual online platform on local adaptation and mitigation strategies – a tool that is likely to assist municipalities far beyond the project. The project has supported more than 60 alpine municipalities in setting up local climate plans.

Project funding period:
October 2012 – May 2015
via the INTERREG Alpine Space Programme (EU)
