    EcoEnergia and European Covenant of Mayors conference: Energy poverty and air pollution - the two faces of a (global) problem with solutions at the local level

    Sofia, Representation of the European Commission in Bulgaria
    Organiser: Covenant of Mayors office

    An event in the official agenda of the Bulgarian Presidency of the EU.

    Taking place on 19-20 March, at the Representation of the EU Commission in Sofia.

    This high-level conference, organised by the Covenant supporter EcoEnergia (Municipal Energy Efficiency Network Bulgaria) and the European Covenant of Mayors Office, will bring together representatives of public authorities at central, regional and local level to discuss the effects of the EU's strategic and political approach to the process of shaping national policies in the Southeast European region, the role of multilevel governance and the incentive system to encourage local authorities to develop their own policies on citizens' access to energy services.

    The conference will outline the barriers and political limitations in the fight against energy poverty and air pollution in the region, focussing on the need to support long-term policies and market measures that have a sustainable impact on healthy and comfortable living environment for European citizens at affordable prices.
