Following the European Parliament plenary vote on the LIFE Programme for 2021–2027, EUROCITIES, FEDARENE, Energy Cities and Climate Alliance ask the Council to consider the following points:
1. Higher and different co-financing rates for Clean Energy Transition
2. Recognition of Clean Energy Transition as a new direct objective in the LIFE programme
3. Inclusion of sustainable energy experts in the LIFE Committee
4. Granting access of metropolitan areas to strategic integrated projects
As representatives of the European cities and regions, we reaffirm the importance of these 4 key needs that are further presented in the document attached.
