Power to the people: how can citizens lead Europe's future energy strategy?

European Sustainable Energy Week

Conference

"Power to the people: how can citizens lead Europe's future energy strategy?"

 

Who: Euro Coop, Cooperatives Europe, Cecodhas Housing Europe

What: Conference in celebration of Euroepan Sustainable Energy Week

When: 9.00-14.30, 19 June 2012

Where: Room Sicco Mansholt, Charlemagne Building, Brussels, Belgium

As people increasingly question whether our traditional model of centralised energy supply is still the best solution for Europe, we thought it important to host a debate exploring just how different the future may look.

Bringing together two diverse panels of experts and key actors in the renewable energy field, we will explore whether an emerging decentralised energy supply has a role to play in creating a more sustainable energy policy for Europe.

At this joint event, three European co-operative organisations (Cooperatives Europe, Euro Coop and Cecodhas) will make the case that placing people at the heart of our thinking can encourage collaboration, responsibility and action. Where community projects, local co-operatives and resource sharing increasingly co-exist alongside our national infrastructures, we will debate whether citizens have the potential to lead Europe’s future energy strategy.

Expect lively discussions from our panel – reflecting the views of policy makers, energy experts, co-operatives, NGOs and environmentalists. And come prepared with questions of your own as our moderators capture audience comments and questions for the panel.
