Community Energy Academy: A training programme launches in April 2023!

23. Mär 2023

How can we co-create sustainable energy solutions with local communities and citizens?

What is energy citizenship and how does it change the way we think about energy? How can we mainstream energy communities to speed up energy transition? Join the Community Energy Academy launching in April 2023 and learn more about empowering energy citizens!

Community Energy Academy shares up-to-date knowledge about energy citizenship and energy communities (including developments in regulations and policies), a holistic understanding of citizen engagement in energy systems, and practical action planning tools and networks to implement inclusive and people-centred energy initiatives – starting from your community. Participants will learn about the different types of community energy initiatives and how they can be implemented in different contexts.

Community Energy Academy builds on insights from the EC²-project funded EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The training is organised by ICLEI Europe in collaboration with leading European universities and research centres, pioneering municipalities, and engaged energy communities.
The course content is designed for public administrators, leaders and members of energy communities, researchers, and other sustainability experts. Participation is free of charge and flexible, including both monthly live training sessions and self-paced learning materials. 
The first training session, titled “Energy citizenship - A missing piece to the energy transition puzzle? Introduction to Community Energy Academy” will take place on 19 April 2023, 10-12 CET (in Zoom). Registration is open here.
