Several municipalities in Latvia have developed their SEAPs, including those joining the C4S project. Over the years they have faced different challenges: organisational issues, motivation of employees, lack of knowledge and financial resources, etc. These obstacles have hindered the realisation of foreseen energy efficiency and renewable energy measures. We hope that the C4S activities such as the competition & peer-to-peer learning can help the municipalities gain the right motivation and necessary knowledge, as well as the financial opportunities, for carrying out energy efficiency measures more systematically.


This will be provided by developing and implementing the Energy Management System (EnMS) according to ISO 50001 and by organising an energy-saving competition for public building employees, as well as upgrading their SEAPs to integrate climate targets towards 2030. Participating municipalities will become models for other municipalities in Latvia, and will promote the fulfilment of climate and energy-saving objectives also on a national level.
