Welcome to the Sustainable NOW project website

Sustainable NOW - 'European Sustainable Energy Communities - Effective Integrated Local Energy Action Today' is a European project (running from September 2008 - August 2011), which will:

  • Develop capacity to strengthen the role of local and provincial governments as political and administrative bodies guiding communities in the sustainable energy transition, overcoming non-technical barriers and creating tangible results for sustainability.                                              
  • Create instruments that build on state-of-the-art Local Energy Action Plan (LEAP) developments to support local governments in decision-making for integrated energy management, climate protection actions and securing local energy supply.
  • Make the results widely available through the European Sustainable Cities and Towns Campaign.
  • Guide LEAP implementation in selected learning communities.
