webinar April 23 2020

Webinar: The Power of Energy Communities:
Turning Rights into Reality Across Europe!
April 23, 2020, 9 AM - 11 AM.

Spread the News! NOW You have the right to produce, trade, sell, store and own your own renewable energy! The EU legislation on renewable energy gives communities and individuals the right to generate, store, consume and sell their own energy. These energy rights are transformational and absolutely essential for a decentralized and renewable energy supply. But the rights have to be implemented in national laws to make it happen. How can the power, expertise, motivation and will of energy communities across Europe be united to push for the implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive? Different methodologies, experiences, success factors and barriers from Denmark, Poland, Germany and Turkey are presented and discussed.
Facilitators: Anja Ruehlemann, WECF, Katharina Habersbrunner, WECF & Bundnis Burgerenergie
Speakers:
- Katharina Habersbrunner, WECF, Germany
- Joanna Furmaga, Spoleczny Instytut Ekologiczny / Polish Green Net, Poland
- Nazan Unverir, Troya Energy Cooperative, Turkey
- Gunnar Boye Olesen, Denmark: INFORSE-Europe, Denmark
