ACREC announce partnership banner

Since January 2023, ACR+ and Energy Cities have entered into a strategic partnership.

Energy Cities is the European learning community for future-proof cities. Sharing the same work ethics and principles for actions, the two networks unite forces and expertise to support even further local and regional governments and agencies in their ambition to reinvent their territory’s prosperity within planet boundaries.

What does it mean concretely?

In addition to common initiatives and actions organised by both networks, all ACR+ members have access to the services and activities of Energy Cities, and reciprocally.

As a member of ACR+, you now can benefit – free of extra charges – from the exclusive services Energy Cities offers, and multiply your networking, learning, and funding opportunities.
