Join our peer-to-peer learning programme on innovative financing! We are looking for European regional and local authorities to join our learning journey either as mentors or mentees.

How can public authorities finance and implement sustainable energy projects in the sector of public lighting? This was the main question raised by a group of public authorities who are among the first participants of PROSPECT: Peer Powered Cities and Regions, a peer-to-peer learning project facilitated and funded by the European Commission – Horizon 2020 Programme which focuses on sharing of knowledge, skills, and competencies among local and regional authorities.

The mentor ‘OÖ Energiesparverband (ESV) (AT)’ and mentees ‘Western Development Commission(ΙΕ)’, ‘AE3R Ploiesti/Prahova (RO)’, ‘Municipality of Maia (PT)’, ‘Greater Poitiers Urban Community (FR)’, ‘Coimbra Region (PT)’  and ‘Black Sea Energy Cluster (BG)’ of the 3rd Learning Group for Public Lighting already participated in two online sessions and are preparing for a physical meeting to take place at Linz.
