EUCF First Call Receives Over 250 Applications

The EUCF initiative closed its first call for applications on the 2nd October 2020.

The European City Facility (EUCF) gained more than 250 applications from across the EU with Municipalities and Local Authorities, from all EU member states and the UK, submitting their sustainable energy project applications before the first call deadline earlier this month.

According to the EUCF, the countries from Southern Europe accounted for the highest number of applications with 48%, while Central and Eastern Europe, and the Nordic countries & Western Europe received 28% and 26% of the applications.

Under the EUCF initiative, successful Local Authorities will benefit from €60,000 of financial support which will be awarded to them shortly. This support will be used to develop investment concepts, involving both climate and energy plans.

The evaluation process is now underway with the results to be published towards the end of the year.

Ireland had a strong response to the first call, with Local Authorities from across the country  showing great interest and submitting applications to this initiative. For those applicants who were unsuccessful or who are preparing their investment concept, the second call is just around the corner as it will open in the Spring of next year.
