Guidelines for Energy Day Organisers

ENERGY DAYS 2019

Energy Days are events promoting sustainable energy, held in May and June 2019 throughout Europe. These events can be organised by anyone: citizens, consumer associations, public bodies, city networks, energy agencies, trade and industry organisations, businesses and NGOs. Energy Days vary in format and topic, and can address a local community or even an entire region. Activities can take place in public or private buildings, as well as outside in the open air. Past events have been held in locations such as schools, parks, and conference centres.

WHY ORGANISE AN ENERGY DAY?

Energy Days are a key component of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) – the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe – highlighting the work done in the field of sustainable energy at the local, regional and national level. The theme for EUSEW 2019 is ‘Shaping Europe’s energy future’.

Organising your own Energy Day gives you the opportunity to demonstrate to decision-makers and the general public how you are contributing to ‘Shaping Europe’s energy future’ in your country. Moreover, you can gain EU-wide online visibility by sharing your event on the EUSEW website and social media channels.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Anyone can organise an Energy Day and it can be targeted at any audience as long as the activity is interactive and highlights the importance of  sustainable energy.

Energy Days should:

  • be held in any region in the European Union;
  • be non-profit; and
  • aim to attract a minimum of 10 people.

They may also be part of an existing project, programme, or promotional activity.

HOW TO SET UP YOUR ENERGY DAY?

Register your event as an Energy Day on the EUSEW website by completing the online Energy Day submission form. The EUSEW Secretariat will review your event. Once approved, it will be posted on the interactive map.

For tips and tricks on how to promote your Energy Day check out the Energy Day Organiser Toolkit (coming soon). For any additional questions, the EUSEW Secretariat is here to help you at energydays@eusew.eu.

WHAT IS THE DEADLINE FOR APPLYING?

There is no deadline. The only requirement is that your Energy Day takes place during May and June 2019. The sooner you register your event, the longer it will be promoted on the EUSEW website and social media accounts.
