Providing cities with tools to increase their locally-owned renewable energy production.
We, at Energy Cities, are driven by a desire to strengthen the role and skills of local governments. The hubs are the community spaces that help us achieving our target impacts and goals by:
Our members are diverse cities and local organisations.
Hubs membership is totally free!
There are no conditions to join other than the ambition and the commitment to share experiences.
Are you looking to boost your city’s energy transition while engaging the local population as much as possible and improving the local economy? Do you want a more resilient energy system that can alleviate energy poverty? Then the Community Energy Hub is for you!
People, local authorities and entrepreneurs can be socially responsible energy producers and distributors.
Through sharing best practice and new narratives, we will inspire cities to collaborate with citizens to develop community energy partnerships and projects, maximizing energy security and social equity.
