The Environmental Studies Centre, the Vitoria-Gasteiz City Council, and its regional stakeholders in the INTENSIFY project (Ente Vasco de la Energía EVE and Ihobe), had a group meeting on 16th May 2019.
Several topics were discussed. One of the main ones was the presentation of the Roadmap for the Action Plan for Climate and Sustainable Energy PACES (2021-2030) of the city. This Roadmap lists the different phases that, beginning with this milestone, will culminate with the approval of the document and its referral to the Covenant of Mayors in the last quarter of 2020. One of the requirements of the Pact of Mayors is indeed to communicate the results in their fields of application. Since one of the main objectives of the INTENSIFY project is to create Social Digital Platforms to promote the engagement of the citizens in energy policies and in the fight against climate change, the implementation of this DSP in Vitoria-Gasteiz in addition to supporting the replication at a regional level (Basque Country) of the aforementioned platform and extend the influence and impact of the INTENSIFY project, it will comply with the communicating requirement of the Covenant of Mayors.
