About this event

How Member States can make the Clean Energy Package work for citizen and community energy. Transposition guidance for REDII and IEMD.

17th of November 2020, 11:00-12:30 (CET)

On behalf of Community Power, eco-union, EREF, Friends of the Earth Europe,, RNP project (Renewables Networking Platform), SCORE project and Viadrina University, we would like to invite you to this webinar that focusses on the game-changing new EU rules that put communities and citizens at the heart of the energy transition. Experts will provide guidance and examples how governments can best transpose these rules into national laws to make the Clean Energy Package work for their citizens and community energy.

The EU has agreed to the wide-ranging “Clean Energy Package for all Europeans” which includes provisions on citizen’s rights and energy communities. It is currently the task of the Member State governments to transpose these directives, i.e., put them into national law. Every capital received the same directives (namely RED II and IEMD), but we are seeing many different approaches.

Speakers will present the transposition guidance document for Member States and recommenda-tions as well as best practice examples and experiences from early adopters of the REDII and IEMD.The Zoom-meeting will take place on Tuesday 17th November 2020, 11:00-12:30.(CET)
