LEDS EEP webinar series: Tools and methodologies for sustainable energy planning


Join the LEDS Europe and Eurasia Platform (LEDS EEP) for a no cost webinar series on tools and methodologies for municipal and regional sustainable energy planning.

While energy and climate policies are frequently set at the national level, regional and municipal authorities also play a crucial role in implementing these policies. The overall success depends on the capacity of local authorities to properly plan and develop municipal energy sector development plans that take into consideration national and international climate policy objectives.

The objective of this nine-part webinar series is to develop and improve the capacity of municipalities for sustainable energy planning.

Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) for municipal energy sector planning – 27 September 2017, 15:00-16:00 CET 

LEAP is an integrated, scenario-based modelling tool for energy policy analysis and climate change mitigation assessment. It can be used to track energy consumption, production, and resource extraction in all sectors of an economy, as well as to account for both energy sector and non-energy sector greenhouse gas emission sources and sinks.

This webinar discusses how municipal energy sector planning can benefit from the LEAP system.
