ManagEnergy is a technical support initiative of the Intelligent Energy - Europe (IEE) programme of the European Commission which aims to assist actors from the public sector and their advisers working on energy efficiency and renewable energy at the local and regional level.

ManagEnergy Workshops


ManagEnergy capacity building workshops seek to provide practical training and capacity development for municipalities and other local and regional energy actors with a public mandate. Key target groups are staff from cities that have already signed or are interested in signing the Covenant of Mayors, local and regional energy agencies and other energy actors. The capacity development workshop content covers various aspects of Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) development, financing and implementation, as well as more general topics in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy.
