Inspired by remunicipalisation initiatives all over Europe, an increasing number of local authorities are expanding their role, no longer simply acting as planning authorities but becoming operational stakeholders and driving forces for the local energy transition. New integrated municipal companies are increasingly being set up.
In this context, Energy Cities and the City of Ettlingen (Germany) invite elected members and municipal technicians to a 2-day workshop on 28th February and 1st March 2019.
The workshop will present concrete examples from different EU countries – Cadiz (Spain), Ettlingen (Germany), Heerlen (the Netherlands), Kalundborg (Denmark) and Nottingham (United-Kingdom) – to show how energy supply can be managed or owned by local authorities. We will provide a lot of space for small group work and peer-to-peer exchange.
