During the web meeting, Miguel Morcillo (Climate Alliance), the head of a German working group on C02 monitoring at the neighbourhood level, introduced the topic to the other partners of CAN in order to make sure that the first recommendations from Germany will work on a European level, too. In the future, some partners of CAN will participate in the working group and help to develop a standardized set of precise guidelines for local authorities that aim at developping an energy efficient neighbourhood concept. The partners discussed challenges of this ambitious plan, such as the difficulties in defining the boundaries of a "neighbourhood", while not losing sight of the many advantages a uniform procedure and instruments offer for a qulaified CO2 monitoring. A first draft of the guidelines should be available by October 2018.
