Making the energy transition happen locally

12th SET Plan Conference, co-organised by the European Commission, the Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Committee of the Regions, with the support of the Romanian Municipalities Association and the Romanian Ministry of Energy

- Strategies needed at local and regional level to scale-up and accelerate the renewable energy transition
- Currently available investment options to harness the potential of businesses and to create low-carbon innovative economies at the local and regional level
- Local challenges and solutions towards integration and coupling of different energy systems
- Concrete ways the SET Plan contributes to both fast-tracking the renovation rates of building stocks and to increase energy efficiency
- The pivotal role of local and regional authorities in the energy transition, from the integration of low-carbon and e-mobility solutions to the production and consumption of renewable energy

Designing smart and efficient energy policies with citizens

Workshop organised by Lille European Metropolis
This session proposes to present diverse local and European projects : AMELIO by Lille Metropole, AREA21 by HafenCity University Hamburg, and STARDUST by Trento City. All are using new methods to face the difficulties that cities have in designing local energy retrofitting services. New participatory methods are used to make sure programs are in line with people’s actual needs and fight difficulties to involve stakeholders and consumers through traditional participatory methods.
The focus will be set on the co-creation of these policies and the session will also therefore touch upon governance questions. Discussion and workshops will be moderated by Greenovate Europe!.

LIFE PlanUp webinar: Involving stakeholders and the public in national energy and climate planning - good practices from across Europe

Organised by Energy Cities as part of the LIFE PlanUp project

Under the EU Energy Union Governance regulation, EU Member States are currently preparing their integrated 2030 national energy and climate plans (NECPs), in which they are outlining their contribution to achieve the collective European targets. The NECPs are considered to be a critical instrument in driving forward Europe’s energy and climate transition. EU countries are required to involve local and regional authorities and civil society organizations, as well as the public, in the development and the implementation of these plans.

The LIFE PlanUp project seeks to facilitate public and stakeholder involvement in the design and delivery of the NECPs, by improving the coordination and cooperation between local authorities, NGOs and national policymakers.
This webinar aims to provide an outlook into different participatory methods on how to ensure public involvement and participation in national energy and climate planning. Good examples from across Europe will be presented by speakers from Estonia, Ireland and Luxembourg, which are drawn from the upcoming LIFE PlanUp project publication “Report on Good Practices in Energy and Climate Governance”. A representative from the Energy-Directorate of the European Commission will also provide an overview on the state of play of public participation in the draft NECPs.
