CEE Sustainable Energy Network coordinator will participate in annual Covenant of Mayors conference in Iuje, Belarus on June 28th 2018. Belarus, like other Eastern European countries, has a good potential for transforming to low-carbon economy. CEESEN members can share their knowledge and experiences with their partners in Belarus on supporting the local forerunners of sustainability.

The conference is part of “Strong CoM – Strengthening the Covenant of Mayors Movement in Belarus”, funded by the European Union under the EU4Energy initiative. EU4Energy covers all EU support to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the Eastern Partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine). It does this by financing projects and programmes that help to reform energy markets and to reduce national energy dependence and consumption. Over the long term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector.
