Budaörs reduced emissions by 15%
Energiaklub has monitored the SEAP of the City of Budaörs, and evaluated the current GHG emission levels. As a member of the Covenant of Mayors, the city has a voluntary target to reduce its CO2-emissions by 20% until 2020.
According to the available data, the city is on the right way to fulfil its pledges. The CO2 emission in 2014 - the year of the last available data - was 15% less, compared to the baseline year of 2009. This is due to several building retrofits in the municipal and residential sectors, the installed solar panels on rooftops and energy efficient investments in the tertiary sector.
The municipalities' measures and steps are not only important contributions for the European climate policies, but also result in cleaner cities, higher indoor comfort in buildings, lower energy bills and healthier society.
The future plans of Budaörs include a wide range of interventions, e.g. providing financial support for further energy retrofits of households, developing the e-transport in the city, creating new bike roads and extending renewable capacities.
