Empower local and regional authorities to design clean energy transition plans through capacity and knowledge building actions


The ENTRACK project will support Mediterranean rural municipalities in the co-design of feasible, ambitious and fair energy plans. It will address the knowledge and capacity gaps of local authorities and support them in the joint design of social energy plans that respond to the real energy needs of regions and local stakeholders, including vulnerable citizens.

Recent EU frameworks have recognized that local and regional authorities have a key role in implementing energy and climate targets to achieve climate neutrality in the EU by 2050. However, local policy makers, especially in communities rural areas, often do not have the appropriate knowledge and technical capacity to carry out socially just energy transition processes. ENTRACK’s proposal starts from this urgent need, addressing the lack of knowledge and capacity of local authorities and supporting them in the co-design of social energy plans that respond to the real energy needs of regional actors and agents and local communities, including vulnerable citizens, and that are also in line with European and national energy policy frameworks.

ENTRACK will support Mediterranean rural municipalities to co-design feasible, ambitious and fair energy plans. Specifically, ENTRACK will develop and test training methodologies and processes in 8 rural municipalities selected from 4 Mediterranean countries: 2 in Greece (Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace), 2 in Italy (Region of Campania), 2 in Portugal (Region of Alto Alentejo) and 2 in Spain (in Ripollès and Osona).

Ecoserveis' role

The role of Ecoserveis is focused on contributing its expertise in energy transition when co-designing the energy plans with the pilots in Catalonia. In addition, he will lead the replication phase of the project in municipalities beyond the pilots and exploitation of the results, as well as the creation and coordination of a Community of Practice (CoP).


The project hopes to build the capacity of local authorities in relation to the co-design of social energy policies and their implementation in rural areas. Specifically, the objectives are the following:

  1. Increase the capacity of legislators at the regional and local level.
  2. Guarantee a multi-level governance perspective and the harmonization of energy policies.
  3. Contribute to achieving national and European goals in relation to sustainable energy.

ENTRACK also proposes to provide a scalable methodology to other rural areas.
