The public sector is legally obliged to rationally use and systematically manage energy in all its properties on the national, regional and local level. That is why LGs must promote activities for the application of measures which aim to improve energy efficiency and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.
Developing an inclusive and comprehensive SEAP is very challenging, but it provides a valuable tool that can be used to plan and monitor progress in all sectors where energy is used, and help to bring on board key stakeholders.
When discussing the water and energy nexus, management of consumption is an optimal solution to address issues such as water scarcity, while limiting the increase of supply and therefore energy use. Through reducing leaks from distribution pipelines, promoting water-saving technologies and behaviours, cities can sustain growth and reduce their vulnerability to climate change without impacting negatively on environmental resources and social needs.
