To support local governments in long term energy and climate planning is precisely the goal of the C-Track 50 project, which aims to mobilize and guide public authorities and to support them in developing, financing and implementing ambitious integrated sustainable energy and climate policy action plans. In this, C-track 50 supports at least 116 sustainable energy and climate policy action plans and develops more than 105 funding proposals for implementing sustainable energy and climate actions/projects.
