Organised by Green Energy Cooperative
The Good Energy Summit is intended for everyone who views the development of renewable energy sources as a chance to develop local communities and create a
positive change in the society. Good energy encompasses new economic models and
practices that through ownership and use of renewable energy sources improve
quality of life in local communities and are based on the principles of fairness,
democracy and concern for people and the environment.
Over 80 local and European experts, researchers, practitioners,
decision-makers, social entrepreneurs, innovators, activists and enthusiasts who deal
with community energy, energy communities and energy poverty from different
backgrounds, are being invited, all sharing the same goal: bringing positive changes in the society.
REScoop.eu, Energy Cities, Energy4All, Robin Hood Energy,
Caritas Germany, Transnational Institute, Focus, Greenpeace, UNDP Serbia, GIZ Serbia,

In three and a half days you will be able to take part in more than 30 lectures and panel
