Common events with H2020 projects

Energy Citizenship in the making


Along with three other Horizon 2020 projects working on energy citizenship, ENCLUDE co-organised the Energy Citizenship in the making event on 5 March 2024, in Brussels. The event aimed to provide insights from the four projects on how energy citizenship can contribute to an inclusive, democratic, and sustainable Green Deal. The event had over 50 participants from academia, policymaking (both at the EU and Member State level), and the civil society, and mostly presented the results of a newly published policy brief by the four projects.  

In this brief, the four projects agree that the view on citizens’ roles in the European energy transition must be expanded beyond being consumers, prosumers and belonging to energy communities. Across the four projects, around 32,000 citizens have been involved in research and capacity-building around the concept of energy citizenship through interviews, surveys, workshops, case studies, co-creation activities, and educational and training programmes. The policy brief distils the knowledge, perspectives, and experiences of the involved citizens into concrete pathways and recommendations, for decision-makers, primarily at the EU-level but which may also be relevant for Member States as well as regional and local authorities.
