Providing a tool accessible to all, whilst encouraging territories to aim at excellence is the new challenge that the Cit’ergie programme, the French version of the European Energy Award, has set itself for the next few years, so that local authorities’ action will be more ambitious and have a greater impact on the territory’s transition towards a low-carbon, low-energy model.
For the 2019 edition, the Cit'ergie label will be awarded to 29 French local authorities whose application was accepted in 2018 on the grounds of the demonstrable and exemplary results of their climate-air-energy policies.
The network continues to grow and has gained over 165 local authorities in just 10 years! The session will provide the audience with an opportunity to discover the winners and their achievements.
ADEME and the Urban Community of Dunkirk will also unveil the new programme aimed at recognising and supporting local circular economy initiatives.
