Workshop to boost the clean energy transition of local authorities and businesses



Want to understand how local stakeholders can become powerful drivers and facilitators of a clean energy transition? Then this workshop is for you!

In October 2019, Brussels will be hosting a seminar featuring different models tapping into citizens and local businesses as resources for the clean energy transition, including transition planning, community engagement and financing.

The session is intended for local authorities and EU-decision-makers, and will be held by the Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat of which 3E is technical coordinator.

This workshop aims to be practical by first presenting good practice examples from experts used to taking part in multi-stakeholder transition projects. Then time will be dedicated to analyzing, in smaller groups, how to include the presented engagement methods in your own endeavours.

The European Week of Regions and Cities

This event is organized in the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities. As stated on their website, “The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual four-day event during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, implement European Union cohesion policy, and prove the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance.” This European networking platform for regional and local development welcomes every year about 6.000 participants attending more than 100 workshops and debates on topics such as EU regional policy, community-led local development and cross-border cooperation.

3E and the Secretariat

As a member of the Secretariat, 3E is coordinating and providing technical support to 26 pioneering islands on the development of their Energy Transition Agendas. In addition, 3E is doing studies on renewable energy projects and is developing strategic energy transition plans.
