Discover ManagEnergy Networking Event's programme!

In 2020, the energy transition is entering a new phase: the new EU Green Deal, new legislation and programmes in Member States to implement the Clean Energy Package and, in general, a new momentum for climate protection.

The ManagEnergy Networking Event will present how energy agencies can make use of these opportunities to drive the energy transition in their cities and regions. Together, we will discuss how we can develop our organisations and trigger more sustainable energy investment in our regions and cities.  

Energy Agencies can be leaders in the energy transition: they have a key role in activating important stakeholder groups - politicians, administrations, citizen and local businesses - and catalysing the process of change. We will show you how!

Financial support is provided in the context of ManagEnergy to selected participants from local and regional energy agencies: up to 200 Euro as contribution to travel and accommodation costs and free entrance to the European Energy Efficiency Conference (4-6 March 2020, participation fee: value of 330 Euro).  So register now & apply for funding!
