The Compete4SECAP project offers 32 European cities from 8 different countries the possibility of implementing an energy management system certified by ISO 50001 through which it aims to achieve a significant reduction in primary energy consumption associated with the consumption of municipal buildings. In order to increase these savings, cities will participate in a competition in which both the savings achieved by each locality and their success in implementing this system will be assessed.
EuroVértice is the partner responsible for providing support to Spanish cities, helping them both in the development and implementation of their energy management system and in the process of joining the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, as well as in the preparation of its Action Plan for Climate and Sustainable Energy.
Since the start of the project in October 2017, 32 municipalities of the European Union are implementing an Energy Management System according to ISO 50001:2018.
In order to favour the implementation of this System and achieve greater energy savings, these municipalities are currently immersed in an energy efficiency competition at European level and, in order to win it, they must be the ones that save the most energy during the year 2019.
EuroVértice, as the partner responsible for the project at national level, has facilitated the development of these tasks in the four Spanish municipalities participating in the project. On the one hand, 28 officials have received specific technical training on Energy Management Systems according to ISO 50001:2018 and, on the other hand, a total of 78 officials have received training in energy efficiency that will enable them to save energy at home and at work and win the competition.
The project has a total budget of 1,792,608.75 Euros and the contribution from the European Union is 1,784,983.75 Euros.
