Annex to the Guidebook "How to develop a sustainable Energy Action Plan in the Eastern Partnership and Central Asian Cities"

Publication date: 2014

This publication is a Science and Policy Report by the Joint Research Centre, the European Commission’s in-house science service. It aims to provide evidence-based scientific support to the European policy-making process. This document collects the most common mistakes from Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) submitted by local authorities of Eastern Partnership and Central Asian cities and analysed so far by the JRC. The mistakes can refer to methodological issues as well as to the way the information is presented in the SEAP document and/or in the online SEAP submission templates. Furthermore, this document also provides recommendations on how to avoid these most common mistakes, describing relevant examples of good and bad practices. These recommendations will increase the possibilities for a SEAP to be accepted by the JRC (without a need for revision by the signatory) Additionally, they will also help signatories to develop a good document, which will be well understood by different stakeholders (technical officers, citizens) and will lead the way to the successful implementation of the SEAP.
