Accelerating the clean energy transition — financing energy efficiency at the local level

Wednesday 21 June 11.00 - 12.30
Energy Cities, Climate Alliance, EUROCITIES & CEMR

This session presents a local actor view on the three pillars of the Smart Finance for Smart Buildings initiative recently launched by the European Commission as part of the Clean Energy package. This event includes a keynote speech followed by an interactive session where EU policy makers and representatives of financial institutions are invited to discuss with local stakeholders key recommendations with the goal of strengthening the role of the local level in accelerating the clean energy transition.

Local energy communities and Covenant of Mayors cities

Wednesday 21 June 16.00 - 17.30
European Commission & Covenant of Mayors Office (led by Energy Cities)

Local Energy Communities (LEC), facilitate and reward active participation of consumers in the energy market, help achieve RES targets and increase the energy system’s flexibility, and foster public acceptance of decentralised RES generation. The session showcases concrete examples of successful LECs, developed by or under the auspices of signatory municipalities in the Covenant of Mayors. It also shows the position of the Covenant of Mayors as a key gateway to rolling out the LEC model, and provides input from local authorities and stakeholders involved in the set-up or management of LECs on how the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package could further enhance their upscaling.

Leading the energy transition — the different flavours of local energy communities and companies

Thursday 22 June 11.00 - 12.30
Energy Cities & REScoop

Many in the energy sector do not yet clearly understand what local energy communities are or the benefits they have to offer the energy system. Through an interactive panel and subsequent debate, presenters will provide different perspectives of how local energy communities and local energy companies are driving the energy transition. The purpose of having such an exchange will be to better inform the debate about what local energy communities are what they are capable of, and how they should be supported.

Think local first: designing an EU building policy framework centred on consumers, local authorities and energy advisory services to deliver on Europe’s renovation challenge / SIDE-EVENT

Tuesday 20 June 09:00 – 13:00
Energy Cities as part of the PUBLENEF project

This Policy Roundtable will address the questions of 1) how EU and national policy can support the provision of integrated energy renovation and advisory services to consumers and 2) what is the role of local authorities and local energy advisory services in attracting private sector finance and investment for building renovations? The roundtable will bring together consumer organisations, local authorities and building policy experts to discuss these questions and the audience will be encouraged to join the debate.

See you in Brussels!
