The Italian Province of Ferrara is the second public authority (the first one was the City of Gijon) to participate in the new Technical Assistance Facility of the European Energy Efficiency Fund (eeef).

The eeef Technical Assistance Facility is assisting public authorities to prepare feasibility studies, energy audits, evaluate the economic viability of investments and launch the tender process.

The Province of Ferrara has joined forces with the development agency "SIPRO Agenzia Provinciale per lo Sviluppo", to develop a €15m investment programme that addresses the implementation of energy efficiency measures in several municipalities. The Province of Ferrara counts 24 municipalities, and 22 of them have adopted Covenant of Mayors Sustainable Energy Action Plans. However, they need support to boost the implementation of their projects.

Municipalities directly involved in this technical assistance project are Ferrara, Cento, Argenta, Bondeno, Mesola, Copparo and Voghiera, leading the way to encourage further public authorities to pursue their green investment paths.

The investment programme includes deep energy retrofitting measures (in 13 buildings such as schools, offices, town halls and sport facilities) and the replacement of 27,000 public lighting points by LED technology in the cities of Ferrara and Voghiera.

The eeef is welcoming other European public authorities to follow suit the case studies of Gijón and the Province of Ferrara in launching similar projects – the new eeef Technical Assistance is available for further applications.
