#EUSEW2020 – Empowering consumers through energy communities



The 24 June 2020 from 16:00 until 17:30

Organised in the framework of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) taking place online from the 22nd to the 26th June around the theme “Beyond the crisis: clean energy for green recovery & growth”

The purpose of this session is to raise awareness on the opportunities offered to citizens when participating in Energy Communities as well as how they can contribute to the recovery efforts. It will further inform the ongoing debate on what needs to be done to create an enabling environment for the development of Energy Communities, looking at opportunities and challenges for specific territories such as islands, rural and urban areas. Our member city Heerlen will bring in their experience following the launch of the city’s solar cooperative.
