Implementing Energy Efficiency in REScoops around Europe

Policy breakfast debate

· Past event

On the 26th of February 2019, the team of REScoop PLUS organises a policy breakfast on the role of the community energy movement in the European policy landscape, and how it supports energy efficiency in Europe.

The REScoop PLUS policy breakfast, hosted by Ms. Theresa Griffin (MEP – S&D), will give us the chance to discuss the future role of energy communities in reaching national and European energy efficiency targets. The breakfast will start with presentations from our host and experts around the experience of community initiatives to tackle energy efficiency and energy poverty at the local level. We will then go into a debate facilitated by the team of the Coalition of Energy Savings, focusing on the next policy question regarding the implementation of the Clean Energy Package.

Event registration is by invitation only. The registrations will close on the 21st of February 2019, in order to allow for the accreditation to be processed.
