PentaHelix - Multi stakeholder and multi governance approach for SECAP development and implementation

The PentaHelix project aims to empower local and regional authorities to find innovative and cost effective approaches to develop, finance, implement and improve sustainable energy and climate action plans (SECAP). The main objective is to develop a pentahelix based method and use this to engage and support authorities on multiple levels together with other key stakeholders in different sectors for increased SECAP development and implementation.

PentaHelix stands for integrated development and focuses on five different stakeholder groups:

  • Public authorities (local, regional, national and international)
  • Industry (and businesses such as SMEs, farmers, trade etc)
  • Academia (research and educational institutes)
  • NGOs (associations, interest organisations, etc)
  • Citizens (house owners, car owners, commuters etc)

In this project the PentaHelix approach will be tested on 8 pilot municipalities and replicated in many more as well as dissemination of results and findings to key target groups throughout Europe.

the objectives

  • Develop the PentaHelix method and demonstrate it in 6 partner regions in 5 countries, with 1-2 pilot municipalities in each region (8 in total). This includes:Use PentaHelix task forces to develop or re-evaluate SE(C)APs in the pilot municipalities
  • Use PentaHelix task forces in the implementation of a total of at least 30 actions detailed in local SE(C)APs (an average of at least 5 actions in each region). This will lead to direct energy savings of estimated 1347 GWh/year, and increased renewable energy production of estimated 755 GWh/year, and prepare the ground for investments in the order of 950m€.
  • Develop a peer-to-peer platform where the planners and members of the PentaHelix task force can share not only best practices, but materials such as text, figures, emission data, etc, that the municipalities can use directly in their SE(C)AP work.
  • Provide climate communication training and guidelines for the partners in the consortium and the associated pilot municipalities
