Contact: Territoire Engagé Transition Écologique

„Territoire Engagé Transition Écologique“, (until 2021 called Cit‘ergie) the French counterpart of the European Energy Award (eea) programme, is administered and disseminated through the regional offices of ADEME, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency. Participating local governments are provided with technical assistance for entering the programme and financial support during the awarding process, and integrated in the network.
In addition to highlighting the ambitious sustainable energy policies of local governments, „Territoire Engagé Transition Écologique“ is promoted as an operational tool for structuring and executing a Territorial Climate-Air-Energy Plan, taking action under Agenda 21, complying with commitments made under the Covenant of Mayors, and the implementation of local energy and climate policies.
