    EMPOWERING Final Conference

    Organiser: Others

    Over the past 3,5 years the EMPOWERING Team  (regional development agencies, regions, research institutes from 6 EU regions -Italy, Spain, Romania, Croatia, Hungary and Greece) was working on it to empower local and regional authorities involved to shape sustainable energy plans in coherence with the European climate and energy policies. The Horizon 2020 EMPOWER project is now coming to an end.

    The conference aims to bring together all stakeholders involved in energy, climate planning and in the transition to a low carbon society: local, regional, national authorities, decision-makers, technicians, academia, NGOs, networks.
    Participants of the conference will have the opportunity to get first-hand experience from the participating regions and local authorities and benefit from projects’ results (tools, e-platforms) that can be transferable to different local settings.

    Finding an answer to reduce global warming is not possible by going alone. This session aim at presenting stakeholders of climate action:

    • In the first session, supporting structures will be presented. Speakers of the session include representatives of the Hungarian Climate Alliance, Energy Cities and EASME.
    • During the second session, local and regional authorities to meet the EU climate- and energy targets (including capacity building, stakeholder engagement, multi level governance, energy management tools) will be presented.
    • The last session is a panel discussion. Local and regional authorities will be invited to share their experience and best practices on long-term energy planning and multi-level governance and define how to best meet the the EU’s 2030 and 2050 climate and energy targets.
