Covenant of Mayors
The Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy brings together thousands of local and regional authorities voluntarily committed to implementing EU climate and energy objectives on their territory.
Signatories now pledge to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030 and to adopt an integrated approach to tackling mitigation and adaptation to climate change. . A question? Please check the FAQ page.
What is the scope of the Baseline Emission Inventory?
The Baseline Emission Inventory should essentially be based on the final energy consumption data, i.e. what is consumed by the final end-users (incl. electricity, heat/cold and fuel) within the boundaries of the local authority.
Local energy production can also be included in the inventory if the Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan introduces actions related to it (e.g. development of PVs, wind power, district heating or Combined Heat and Power). The SEAP guidebook (EN, DE, FR, IT & ES) provides more information on this option. Notice that the SEAP guidebook is prepared for mitigation only but can be used as up to date guidance for also developing a Baseline Emission Inventory for the SECAPs.
