Cities and energy communities: working hand-in-hand for the energy transition
Energy communities can help citizens and local authorities invest in renewables and energy efficiency. Local governments are uniquely well-placed to support and partner with local energy communities, and to provide a positive planning and policy environment to help drive community energy. This session will discuss the role of local and regional authorities in fostering community energy. It will provide an overview of the different models of collaboration between cities and energy communities and showcase successful examples from across the continent.
