PLEEC project – "Planning for Energy Efficient Cities". Check out the PLEEC model at model.pleecproject.eu.

The PLEEC model is a guide for city planners in European cities to develop their Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) in order to meet the EU 20-20-20 goals. The guide consists of the PLEEC partners´ joint experiences from developing six EEAPs. By taking part of the model content, through literature studies, checklists, movies and city partners' advice, the reader gets a strong base to initiate the Action Plan. One of the lessons from PLEEC is that understanding local conditions in different cities is key to developing an EEAP that can be successfully implemented. No action can be copied from one city to another but by sharing experiences we can come a long way towards a more energy efficient future.  The PLEEC model is one of the core outputs of the PLEEC project.
