- energy supply | energy cooperation | citizens' Europe | sustainable development
This workshop intends to shed light on the importance of engaging people and unlocking the potential of technologies to promote Energy Communities and meet the EU’s ambition of a joint net-zero emission of greenhouse gases by the year 2050. To ensure a people-centric, sustainable, just and innovative energy future, citizens, and experts must be brought into dialogue to co-design new ways of organising around energy.
To approach these challenges, four Horizon 2020 sister projects (Creators, LocalRES, Hestia, and Lightness) will illustrate approaches, strategies, and solutions being tested in different typologies of Energy Communities. Instead of a techno-centric approach, these projects will present their methods to engage people and co-design technologies to forward a clean and fair energy transition.
