How can local governments and their communities help to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy until 2030? What part do community-owned renewables play in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and especially the COP21 Paris Agreement?

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), ICLEI Europe, the French Economic Social and Environmental Council, and the Committee of the Regions (CoR) have come together to present an event in the context of the COP21 addressing these key challenges and starting a dialogue on the role of civil society and community engagement following the Paris Agreement. The roll-out of sustainable energy in Europe in the run-up to 2030 will be the central theme, with a specific focus on the potential of community-led and owned RES for local and regional development. The event is organised in collaboration with the CO-POWER project.

Policy is a vital bridge between commitment and action and is instrumental in seeing ambitious actions through from concept to real change on the ground. At this event, local governments and civil society-led initiatives will share best practices from their experience with community energy and will lead a conversation on how to plan ahead to 2030. A diverse group of experts including European, national, regional and local policy makers will participate alongside local governments, networks and associations, community energy projects, cooperatives, rural communities, NGOs and RES developers.
