  20. 27. Local Renewables Model Communities Network Project <ul><li>A new initiative of ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability </li></ul><ul><li>Supported by BMZ with technical support form GTZ Germany </li></ul><ul><li>Time frame : November 2005 to October 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Objectives: </li></ul><ul><li>- to promote generation and supply of RE and EE with a focus on the roles and responsibilities of local governments as the driving force for innovation and investment </li></ul><ul><li>- to motivate and enable two/three local governments from India to anchor the development of RE sources in their municipal development strategies and to initiate related activities </li></ul>
  21. 28. Local Renewables Model Communities Network Project Three complementary components of the project: A: Model Communities: - ICLEI will support the development of two/three “model” communities in India - The model communities will commit to creating local policies to encourage - EE & the increased use of RE renewable energy - Establish & operate capacity centres: - demonstrate & promote RE & EE technologies - provide information and advice - The model communities will set examples & encourage additional municipalities to emulate their progressive energy policies.
  22. 29. Local Renewables Model Communities Network Project <ul><li>Three complementary components of the project (Contd.) : </li></ul><ul><li>B: Network: </li></ul><ul><li>ICLEI will facilitate the linkage of the two/three model communities in India with existing pilot cities in Africa, Europe, Latin America & US through an international Network </li></ul><ul><li>ICLEI will also link relevant academic institutes, NGOs, municipal and professional associations and international agencies to the Network </li></ul><ul><li>C: Replication: </li></ul><ul><li>- To ensure the Local Renewables Network grows beyond India, ICLEI will design and fundraise for more model projects in additional countries </li></ul>
  23. 30. Impacts of the project <ul><li>  On the local level: </li></ul><ul><li>a reduction in the rate of growth of energy consumption; </li></ul><ul><li>improved access to lower-cost energy services for the urban poor; </li></ul><ul><li>a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants; </li></ul><ul><li>a healthier, cheaper and more sustainable, secure and efficient energy supply. </li></ul><ul><li>  Additional local benefits that the project will seek to provide include: </li></ul><ul><li>job creation and creation of opportunities for entrepreneurship </li></ul><ul><li>reduced operating costs for municipally owned systems & facilities from the utilization of RE sources and improvements in EE </li></ul>
  24. 31. <ul><li>On a national and/or international level: </li></ul><ul><li>Cities and other entities that do not directly participate in the project will benefit from : </li></ul><ul><li>Establishment of a benchmark for other local governments & national governments in the formulation and implementation of energy policies; </li></ul><ul><li>Increased demand for renewable energy technologies; </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced pressure on global environmental common goods; </li></ul><ul><li>Strengthened cooperation between local governments; </li></ul><ul><li>Showcases for more countries to start national model projects; and </li></ul><ul><li>Enriched technical knowledge that ICLEI can provide to further cities and actors. </li></ul>Impacts of the project
