21 June 2019, 13:30–16:30, Brussels
As part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week, Lille Metropole will present a participative workshop on efficient energy policies involving citizen participation.
Most cities have one or several local programmes to help inhabitants and companies save energy. However, these programmes often appear technical, red-tape-laden, time consuming with a high degree of uncertainty to reach actual retrofitting and ultimately energy (and money) savings. This session proposes to present diverse local and European projects using new methods to face the difficulties that cities have in designing local energy retrofitting services. New participatory methods are used to make sure programmes are in line with people's actual needs and fight difficulties to involve stakeholders and consumers through traditional participatory methods.
After a presentation by the European Commission, DG ENER, three smart cities projects will be presented with a technical and governance focus:
- AMELIO (Ademe) by Lille Metropole
- AREA21 (Interreg) by HafenCity University Hamburg
- Stardust (H2020) & Sinfonia (H2020) by EURAC Research
Discussion and workshops will be moderated by Greenovate! Europe.
