1.3 Further information about this guide
This guide is based on the experiences of seven European sustainable energy regions in implementing collaborative energy planning through the Coopenergy project.
Coopenergy is a three-year European funded project (co-funded through the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme) aiming to help regional (county) and local public authorities develop their sustainable energy activities by using Multi-Level Governance (MLG) agreements. These agreements could range from informal meetings to more robust partnerships with Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs), ensuring regional and local authorities are working together to the greatest effect to deliver on the EU 20/20/20 targets.
