The European Green Deal calls for new means to build energy efficient and low carbon economies. Funded by the German Government’s European Climate Initiative (EUKI), the ALLIES project offers precisely such means.
It develops and implements the concept of Locally-rooted Financing Entities for Energy Efficiency (LFEEE), i.e. cooperative institutions to foster and finance energy efficiency measures in companies, private premises and municipalities. By doing so, LFEEEs functionas a kind of Citizen Energy Community (CEC) as envisaged in the latest EC energy market directive. At the end of the ALLIES project, partners from Hungary, Poland and Germany seek to inspire followers in other countries to take on the concept of LFEEEs and adapt it to their needs.
Against this background, B.A.U.M. e.V., INEM (the International Network for Environmental Management) and the national project partners - FEWE in Poland, KÖVET Association in Hungary, B.A.U.M Consult GmbH in Germany - cordially invite you to the
ALLIES Virtual and Interactive Final Conference
Financing Local Energy Transition
26.05.2020, 09:00-17:00 CEST
This interactive event will combine presentations with various thematic focuses, online panels with experts and parallel interactive capacity building workshops. We will use a virtual conferencing tool in combination with state-of-the-art visualisation. Please register here before 22.05.2020 to receive the connection details.
The two main objectives of the conference are:
- To present the findings and results of ALLIES and discuss them with potential followers. We will hold special focus sessions for LFEEEs in the Balkan, Baltic and Mediterranean countries.
- To embed ALLIES in supranational structures such as the EUKI or EC programs.
We invite everyone interested in the ALLIES results and keen to apply them in their local context:
- Policy makers
- National and international NGOs
- Representatives of SMEs
- Representatives of municipalities and local energy utilities
- Energy agencies and regional development centres
- Representatives of funding programmes
- discuss interactively how ALLIES’ results relate to the development of local energy communities as defined by the European Commission
- learn how to found cooperative institutions to foster and finance energy efficiency
- enrich your network and become part of the European wide „ALLIES community"
