Energy Cities

2 chemin de Palente
25000 Besançon, France

Energy Cities is the European association of local authorities in energy transition.

From 2017 to 2020, Energy Cities is under the Presidency of the City of Heidelberg (DE) with a Board of Directors of 11 European cities. The association created in 1990 represents now more than 1,000 towns and cities in 30 countries. Energy Cities’ premises are located in Brussels (BE) and Besançon (FR).

Main objectives

  • To strengthen the role and skills of local authorities in the field of sustainable energy.
  • To represent their interests and influence the policies and proposals made by European Union institutions in the fields of energy, climate, environmental protection and urban policy.
  • To develop and promote local authorities' initiatives through exchange of experiences, transfer of know-how and  implementation of joint projects.

3Ds for a new society

Energy Cities’ political vision of the energy future comes in a 3D shape: democratic, devolved and divested. To implement the necessary policy solutions, it takes deliberate action from policy-makers at all levels of government as well as determination and creativity from civil society.
