For you (and with you): The LEDS-EEP City Energy Planning Toolkit

We are calling for interested energy planning experts and companies to be included in our toolkit's

The LEDS-EEP is pleased to inform you that, currently, we are finalising the development of a City Energy Planning toolkit, a follow up product of the “Workshop on Tools and Methodologies for Municipal Sustainable Energy Planning,” which we co-organised on 10-11 July 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine.

The toolkit, meant to provide focused guidance on the use of sophisticated energy modelling tools for developing municipal energy plans, will represent an overview of city energy planning processes, key tools, implementation options, service procurement guidance and the available resources within the Europe and Eurasia region, including case studies and a list of energy consultants providing energy planning services in the region.

Regarding the latter aspect, the toolkit will contain a “Yellow Pages” section which showcases the availability of energy modelling providers in the region, so that, among others, any municipality may consult available experts and invite them to their tenders.

Therefore, if your field of expertise or that of the institution/company you work for fits within the criterion of urban energy planning, we would be pleased if you were to share your contact and expertise highlights information to be included within the LEDS-EEP City Energy Planning toolkit’s “Yellow Pages.”

The inclusion of your or your institution/company’s profile is free of charge, keeping on with the LEDS-EEP’s mission to help build a network and community of policymakers, practitioners and the lender/donor community through meetings, working groups, and resource sharing on topics relevant to low-emissions development strategies.
