Community energy takes centre stage at [email protected] meeting

The role of local and regional authorities in supporting community-led Renewable Energy projects will form the focus of the 16th Breakfast at Sustainability's ([email protected]) meeting, taking place in Brussels (Belgium) on 25 November 2014. Hosted by the Common Representation of the Alpeuregio (comprising the regions of Tyrol, South Tyrol, and Trentino in Italy), the half-day event will see speakers and participants discuss challenges and barriers, as well as share success stories, in the ongoing transition to renewably sourced energy at the local level.

The potential benefits of community energy in relation to energy security will be discussed. The EU internal energy market will also be addressed. Klaus-Dieter Borchardt, Director of the Internal Energy Market unit, DG Energy, will deliver the keynote address, while Tom Jones, Member of the European Economic and Social Committee, will provide insight into civil society’s increasingly important role in energy generation.

[email protected] are small, informal meetings that address topics of sustainable urban development from a local angle. Financing and implementation form core elements of the meetings.
