Municipality of Bucharest, 2nd District, Romania

The aim of the 2nd District of the Romanian capital is to update its local development strategy. The center for the study of democracy will accompanied the municipal staff to carry out a general evaluation of energy poverty and identify the best local indicators. The results will help to broaden the intervention to individual homes, as the city already started to intervene in multi-family buildings. The new identified measures and action will be part of the climate action plan of the city.

The tailor-made assistance will run for up to 9 months and will be made possible due to the strong collaboration between the local government, the EPAH team and an expert organisation selected based on the actions foreseen per proposal.

The other selected applicants are currently working with the EPAH team and the associated expert to finalise the workplan which will guide the technical assistance process (in which phase(s) the municipality is acting) and to identify the final result expected (what kind of components and actions will be developed).

The selected municipalities applied to the EPAH open public call for technical assistance that run between the 1st of February and the 15th of March 2022. Local governments and/or organisations working in strict collaboration with local governments from all the 27 EU Member States were invited to submit a proposal to receive support in the process of tackling energy poverty. A webinar was held in English on 3 February 2022. You can access the recording and the presentation

In 2023 the 2nd call for technical assistance will be launched. To stay updated, check regularly our website, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our newsletter.
