Workshop “Energy self-consumption: Challenges and Opportunities for Regions and Cities. ONLINE – 11WS22272”
The “Energy self-consumption: Challenges and Opportunities for European Cities” workshop is proposed in line with the goal set by the European Commission to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030. It seeks to encourage debates among local and regional authorities on the role of public administration in informing, creating, assisting and offering all possible facilities to businesses and individuals alike, thus promoting energetic efficiency and the use of renewable sources of energy.

Workshop “Addressing cross-border and cross-ecosystem investment needs and cooperation opportunities ONLINE – 11WS22403”
