Illustration Coordinadores del Pacto

Los Coordinadores del Pacto son autoridades públicas en posición idónea para proporcionar orientación estratégica, apoyo técnico y económico a los firmantes del Pacto de los Alcaldes y a los municipios que lo firman.

Además de ayuda económica, los Coordinadores del Pacto suelen respaldar a los firmantes a la hora de elaborar un inventario de emisiones de CO2 y una evaluación de los riesgos climáticos, así como en la preparación y ejecución de sus Planes de Acción para el Clima y la Energía Sostenible.

  • Los Coordinadores Territoriales del Pacto son autoridades descentralizadas, tales como regiones, provincias o agrupaciones de autoridades locales,
  • Los Coordinadores Nacionales del Pacto son organismos públicos a nivel nacional, como ministerios o agencias nacionales de energía.

La Comisión Europea los reconoce como aliados importantes a la hora de apoyar a los firmantes del Pacto de los Alcaldes en el cumplimiento de sus compromisos y el aumento del impacto del Pacto.

Leiedal is an intermunicipal association of 13 cities and municipalities in the south-west of Flanders (Belgium), covering a spatially dense and industrialised region of 300.000 inhabitants.

In 2012 the municipalities and stakeholders launched their "regional energy strategy", a strategy for a carbon neutral region in 2050.

The regional energy strategy identifies seven themes. For these themes we developed answers to the question how the Kortrijk region can realize sustainable energy system and become energy-neutral region in 2050.

There are four "harder" themes that are CO₂-related: built environment (40% of regional CO₂ emissions), renewable energy (avoids CO₂), mobility and transport (30% CO₂) and business (25% CO₂).

There are three "softer" issues that cut across the four “harder” themes: the examples public authorities should be, energy poverty and energy prices.

The regional energy strategy adopted all the results and recommendations of a regional process with expert groups and stakeholder consultation in the publication “South-West Flanders energy neutral by 2050, towards a regional energy strategy”. The booklet is a first milestone in a regional energy transition. She combines the knowledge of local governments and regional organizations, with new insights based on studies and advice from outside experts.

The publication was realised as part of the North Sea Sustainable Energy Planning project (North Sea SEP),Interreg IVb, North Sea Region.

The publication contains:
• What is the energy transition (Global / regional), and what will be the impact?
• CO₂ calculator for the region
• Status Quo of the current situation, trends and challenges
• Transition Paths: vision and strategic objectives
• Proposals for local and regional actions
