Sustainable urban energy planning in Southeast Europe (SEE)

2021 - A concept paper for Connective Cities regional virtual dialogue event, 17-21 May 2021


Connective Cities


The energy sector influences the vibrancy and sustainability of the entire economy – from job creation to resource efficiency and the environment. Significant shifts in the sector can have a strong ripple effect throughout the economy. Making the energy supply more cost-effective, reliable, secure, and environmentally sustainable thus contributes to the long-term resilience of economic development.

This concept paper describes the current context and importance of sustainable energy in SEE; current trends and scenarios in SEE; how SDG 7 and 13 as well as the Paris agreement affects the energy response in SEE; critical challenges for SEE to be energy responsive; some key steps needed for the future in SEE; energy financing - a key strategy for going forward; and finally the agenda for action for the dialogue event: sustainable urban energy planning in SEE.
