EUSEW 2016: Energy democracy and local leadership in the energy transition on the agenda

By on 31 May 2016

Energy Cities is co-organizing two events during the Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) this year. We will discuss the role of energy citizens, local communities and innovative financing and the role of local authorities in the completion of the Energy Union.

15 June, 9.00 – 10.30: Workshop "Towards Energy Democracy: local authorities and citizens in renewable energy and energy efficiency projects"

Who? Co-organisers: WindEurope, CrowdFundRES, Citizenergy, PV Financing, CITYnvest, Community Power, Cooperatives Europe, Energy Cities, Climate Alliance, ICLEI and Housing Europe.

Where ? Charlemagne, Mansholt

This workshop will gather leading European pioneers and use their experiences to further stimulate a wider implementation and replication of their existing, innovative financing solutions for a wide-scale deployment of a renewables based and energy efficient sector with citizens as prosumers and not only consumers of the current energy system. The event will feature key note speakers at EU level such as members of the European Commission and the European Parliament, other representative organisations, citizens, households, policy makers, representatives of local authorities, community owned renewables energy projects.

15 June, 11.00 – 12.30: Conference “Energy Union: local leadership driving the transition”

Who ? ICLEI Europe, Energy Cities, Climate Alliance, Eurocities and CEMR

Where ? Résidence Palace, Salle Polak
The cities did not wait for the Paris agreement to begin their energy transition. About 7,000 of them have already committed by signing the Covenant of Mayors. Being closer to the European citizens, the local level is thus best able to respond effectively to the demands in the field of energy.

This event aims to discuss the role that local governments can play in the Energy Union, by addressing how the sub-national level can operate as primary actor in the governance of the Energy Union, as well as in the roll-out of a more decentralized and integrated energy system. The event will reflect how to best tap the potential of vertical integration and cross-level partnerships for a successful implementation of the energy transition.
