Wallonie Picarde, Belgium

  • slider

In June 2013, 12 towns of Wallonie Picarde joined the national Renewable Energies Championship in order to review their energy policies and try to win the title.

Since then, IDETA, their official partner and coordinator for the Championship, actively supported and helped 11 of them to join the Convenant of Mayors under the program “Wallonie Picarde Energie Positive”. This territorial coordination supports them setting up and implementing local Sustainable Energy Action Plans through various projects: launch of a contest on renewable energy, development of an energy information point, installation of electrical terminals at strategic locations, launch of the mobilization campaign “Engage”, creation of a territorial steering committee, territorial information and site visits.

The collaboration sets itself upon tangible elements such that the relationship of trust between the territorial coordinator and local communities can get stronger. This will reassure local officials to commit fully into the energy transition when adhering to the Covenant of Mayors.
