Community energy across Europe: opportunities and challenges

Brussels, Belgium
Science14 Atrium, 14b, Rue de la Science, 1040
We urgently need to change our energy system into one powered by renewable energy to end our dependency on fossil fuels and the harm they are doing to peoples, our climate and our environment. By putting communities and citizens at the heart of a shift to renewable energy we can achieve a transition more quickly, fairly and with added benefits.
All over Europe communities and citizens are already producing community owned renewable energy. However, many barriers still need to be tackled, such as the lack of political will for a transition towards renewables, and financial and legal obstacles to community owned projects.

The workshop will focus on the following topics:
- Successful community renewable energy projects
- Legislative challenges across Europe
- Financing in Central and Eastern European countries
- Renewable energy cooperatives (REScoops)
- Energy efficiency projects

Target groups: EU and national policy makers, RES industry.

You can register for the event clicking here and you can find more information about the project on the CO-POWER website.
