The project LOCAL4GREEN PLUS supported Local Authorities to define and implement innovative local fiscal policies and specifically green taxation, intended to promote renewable energy sources (RES) both in the public, private sector and households, mainly in the framework of the Sustainable Energy Action Plans adopted by Local Authorities signatories of the Covenant of Mayors. In rural areas and islands of MED regions, local fiscal policies have a key role in increasing renewable energy sources. Since rural local authorities have economical and technical constraints, RES promotion plans should prioritize collaboration and active roles for private sector and households. Local fiscal systems and green taxation are proper tools to lead and engage such actors in RES. The project have been supported the testing of innovative local green fiscal policies, and monitoring their results in spreading renewable energy sources.  The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund, through the Interreg MED Program
