The European Committee of the Regions and the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) are launching a survey on the role of local and regional authorities in the design and implementation of the National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs).
The survey is available HERE.
In the context of the European Green Deal and its Clean Energy Package, Member States are required are required to establish and periodically revise a National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP), or any equivalent documents depending on the national context. Under Article 11 of the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action Regulation, they are also required to establish Multilevel Climate and Energy Dialogues (MCEDs).
With the June 2023 deadline approaching for Member States to submit their updated NECPs to the European Commission, the outcomes of the survey will help clarify the role of local and regional authorities (LRAs) in the energy governance of the EU and the state of implementation of MCEDs in the different Member States.
The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, it will be soon available in all EU languages. The outcomes will feed into two coordinated studies carried out by the CoR and the CEMR and will shape their respective political positions on the revision of the Governance regulation.
The CoR will also make use of the information that was gathered for the Opinion "A multilevel governance for the Green Deal. Towards the revision of the Governance regulation" by rapporteur Joško KLISOVIĆ (HR/PES) and will report on the main findings on the State of Regions and Cities 2023 report.
Deadline : 2 June 2023
