Energising the European Green Deal – Engaging Stakeholders in Multi-Level Governance
The European Green Deal will aim to shift how energy is produced and consumed in the EU. While the Climate Pact will look at bottom-up engagement of stakeholders, how this interconnects with other layers of energy governance in the EU is unclear. Without a multi-level approach to energy governance the ambitious targets set by the EU are unlikely to be achieved. This session will assess initiatives happening at the local, regional, and EU level to highlight synergies and barriers to comprehensive and cohesive energy policy in the EU. By connecting the development of community-level energy projects with the Paris Agreement compatibility of EU-wide transmission networks this session will highlight the need for greater integration of EU and national planning with bottom-up initiatives. We look forward to meeting many of you on Thursday 18th June at 10am CEST for an exciting online event. If you’re interested to join the event then please register here.
