    Making the energy transition happen locally


    Aula of the Politehnica University of Bucharest
    Organiser: European Institutions

    Joint Conference on the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan & Meeting of the Commission for Energy, Climate Change and Environment of the European Committee of the Regions

    What is the role of cities and regions in Europe’s energy transition? How can local and regional actors accelerate the deployment of low-carbon technologies to unlock the full benefits of Europe’s decarbonisation? What investment mechanisms can foster the market uptake of innovative eco products and services? In which concrete ways does the EU’s SET Plan contribute to fast-tracking the energy transition in our cities and regions?

    These will be some of the questions that will be guiding the high-level conference “Making the energy transition happen locally”, co-organised by the European Commission, the Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Committee of the Regions, with the support of the Romanian Municipalities Association and the Romanian Ministry of Energy.

    During this conference, you will learn about:

    • Strategies needed at local and regional level to scale-up and accelerate the renewable energy transition
    • Currently available investment options to harness the potential of businesses and to create low-carbon innovative economies at the local and regional level
    • Local challenges and solutions towards integration and coupling of different energy systems
    • Concrete ways the SET Plan contributes to both fast-tracking the renovation rates of building stocks and to increase energy efficiency
    • The pivotal role of local and regional authorities in the energy transition, from the integration of low-carbon and e-mobility solutions to the production and consumption of renewable energy
