It gives us immense pleasure to invite you to participate in the „Energy transition – making local and regional solutions replicable for Europe” workshop, which will be held on 11th of October between 9:30-10:30 in Room 206, SQUARE Center in Brussels as part of the 21st European Week of Regions and Cities.

Energy transition is all about commitment to clean energy, but it is also about decentralising energy production. This workshop will cover initiatives that are contributing to decarbonisation efforts at local/regional level and showcase projects (including: SUSTENANCE), that are establishing integrated local energy systems (energy islands). The debate will offer local, regional and academic perspectives on the energy shift and its prerequisites, for example in terms of cooperation and sustainability.

Prof. Birgitte Bak-Jensen, from Aalborg University, the project coordinator of SERENE and SUSTENANCE projects, will be among the speakers, next to Iñigo Ansola Kareaga, Director General, Basque Energy Agency as well as Janina Wilkos-Gad, Representative, Municipality of Pruszcz Gdański. Ewa Domke from the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery Polish Academy of Sciences will moderate this workshop.
