Illustration Covenant Supporters

Covenant Supporters are defined as not-for-profit organisations (associations of local and regional authorities, networks, thematic agencies …) with the capacity to promote the Covenant of Mayors and to mobilise and support their members and/or local authorities to reach the Covenant of Mayors’ objectives.

They take action on their territories and areas of expertise (e.g. energy, environment, water, air), and at different levels of governance (e.g. European, national, and regional/local) to promote the Covenant of Mayors initiative and support the commitments of their signatories. With expert knowledge of the regulatory, legislative and financial framework under which they operate - be it at the local/regional, national or European level – Covenant Supporters are ideally placed to provide tailored advice to signatories and identify synergies with existing initiatives.

BiogasAction Brochure on Best Regional-Integrated Biogas Plants
Category: Methods and tools
Description: This brochure contains information on ten interesting biogas plant projects implemented notably by CoM signatories, partners in the BiogasAction project. The document provides the reader with technical data for each plant as well as background information concerning the start-up conditions. The brochure offers a detailed analysis of the current situation and the environment in which the project was drawn up. It also explains the driving forces behind the project's conception and the construction of the plants, and outlines the obstacles faced, along with the involvement of the municipality and the residents of the area around each biogas plant. The financial conditions for each project are described, including detailed analysis of local support tools and financial subsidies. The technical data for each biogas plant is included in detail, with explanation of the types and amounts of feedstocks and the products of the biogas process. The use of the products of biogas, heat and digestate, is important for an efficient and sustainable biogas project. This brochure describes biogas plants that are not only outstanding but also offer a model of success that can feasibly be adapted and applied in other European regions.
Signatories involved: Solrød, Zealand, Kalmar, Energikontor Sydost, RAEE Rhônalpénergie-Environnement.
