Description of what the network is about

Support cities in their transition to futureproof cities. Energy Cities empowers cities and citizens to shape and transition to futureproof cities. We showcase concrete alternatives deployed by cities, we advocate to change politic and economic governance at all levels and we foster a wide cultural change leading to a futureproofed society. Energy Cities’ community is composed by local leaders of thousands of cities in 30 European countries.

Societal problem they want to address

The next steps for cities is to transform their entire metabolism with a climate-neutral approach. Building resilient communities means fostering interdependence between sectors, between territories, between economic, social and cultural players and city leaders in order to share wealth and well-being at the local scale.

Societal domain


Basic aim of network

Encourage transformation of energy systems and policies and strengthen local participation and well-being in Europe.


Energy Cities is a learning community for cities engaged in future-proofing their economies, built around a “local & sustainable first” approach. Our members are from diverse cities. There are no conditions to join other than the ambition and the commitment to share experiences. Our strength lies in our members’ strong commitment to reach climate neutrality in their territories by 2050 and to align their local strategic development with the Paris Agreement.
