TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FUTURE - EMPOWERING LOCAL AND REGIONAL AUTHORITIES
Over the past 3,5 years the EMPOWERING Team (regional development agencies, regions, research institutes from Italy, Spain, Romania, Croatia, Hungary and Greece) was working on it to empower local and regional authorities of each region involved to shape sustainable energy plans coherent with the European climate and energy policies.
The conference aims to bring together all stakeholders involved in energy, climate planning and in the transition to a low carbon society: local, regional, national authorities, decision-makers, technicians, academia, networks.
Participants of the conference will have the opportunity to get first-hand experience from the participating regions and local authorities and benefit from projects’ results that can be transferable to different local settings. Local and regional authorities will be invited to share their experience and best practices on long-term energy planning and define how to best meet the the EU’s 2030 climate and energy targets.
