Although Local Authorities in Cyprus have implemented Sustainable Energy Action Plans and are committed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions to 2020, they face financial difficulties in implementing sustainable energy projects.
The main objective of the LOCAL4GREEN project is to support Local Authorities to implement green policies and specific Green Taxes or practices for the wider promotion of RES on their territory. The project is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg MED Program (2014-2020). From Cyprus, the Energy Office of Cypriot Citizens participates as a partner and as associates the Nicosia, Aradippou and Lythrodontas Municipalities.
At 6-7 July 2017, the 2 meeting of the LOCAL4GREEN project partners in Croatia was held, where the main factors influencing the implementation of green practices in Local Authorities were analyzed. By the end of 2017, the Local Authorities participating in the project will have an integrated Green Tax Implementation Plan which they will need to implement with the ambition to promote and support the implementation of sustainable energy projects.
