Caring by sharing - The 8 IMAGINE pilot cities present their experience on how to develop Local Energy Roadmaps

Although a world’s task, climate mitigation has its highest potential in local solutions and implementations. The “Low-Energy City Policy Handbook” offers a unique toolbox to help municipalities find their own starting point and suitable path to a common goal.

After three years of cooperative work, the “IMAGINE… low energy cities” project publishes its findings in a “Low-Energy City Policy Handbook” aimed for municipalities and local stakeholders.

Developing visions and Local Energy Roadmaps…

The eight IMAGINE pilot cities* have developed their own visions for 2050, serving as a basis for preparing ambitious local energy roadmaps.

… Through innovative participatory processes

In this handbook they share the tools and methods they used to involve their citizens, private players and municipal staff in defining what the city would look like by 2050 and how to achieve those visions.

Academic assessment of the cities’ energy transition processes

The IMAGINE handbook also provides findings from a research perspective about the process of an energy transition. A critical review of communication, visualisation and monitoring tools shall help other municipalities shape their own energy transition. The aim is to advocate the communication in the process of designing “Local Energy Roadmaps”, sustainable energy strategies targeted to the year 2050. As a guidance the IMAGINE project developed and tested an Assessment Grid which eases continuous evaluation of the transition process.
