Our stand at the Energy Fair | European Sustainable Energy Week

We are honored to announce that our project, PLENTY-Life was selected at the European Sustainable Energy Week. The European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe and is organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy and the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA).

In 2024, EUSEW will take place in a hybrid format, online and onsite in Brussels, on 11-13 June. The theme of the event is ‘Net-zero energy solutions for a competitive Europe’.

The European Sustainable Energy Week consists of a 3-day Policy Conference, the European Sustainable Energy Awards Ceremony, the Energy Fair and the fifth edition of the European Youth Energy Day. The events brings together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives accelerating decarbonisation through green technologies and solutions towards a fair and just transition for people and competitive businesses.

In the context that the municipalities play a crucial role in the clean energy transition as planning authorities, infrastructure providers, and facilitators of citizen participation, PLENTY-Life project aims to support small and medium-sized cities on the path to climate neutrality by empowering them to develop and monitor long-term sustainable energy strategies and plans. 

The PLENTY-Life project has therefore set itself the goal of establishing an innovative methodology of stakeholder-based holistic integrated spatial and energy planning to support small and medium-sized cities and towns in preparing their CET strategies. Our stand will show how evidence based and science-led local CET strategy formulation can be implemented, as also addressed in our intended contribution in the “Policy Conference”.  

The municipalities are a central strategic level for clean energy transition, as the way we organise spatial fabrics sets the framework for effective clean energy transition (CET) and climate protection measures.

To achieve climate neutrality, municipalities face the challenge to integrate CET measures in planning decisions across different spatial scales: municipality, neighbourhood, building, taking temporal patterns of supply and demand and future scenarios into account. 

  • Showcasing research and project activities aimed at assisting cities and communities in their efforts to achieve climate neutrality. 
  • Showcasing best practices and lessons learned on implementing effective clean energy measures in key sectors such as buildings, mobility, and industry to accelerate the transformation process. 
  • Addressing key challenges cities face in achieving climate neutrality, including energy infrastructure, land-use for local renewable energy provision, and simultaneously maintain or further develop energy-efficient spatial and settlement structures. 

We believe these insights in research and project activities will captivate EUSEW audience, mainly local and regional administrations, by showcasing decision support tools and interactive online platform for sustainable energy planning, fostering discussions on how to empower municipalities representatives to enable the Clean Energy Transition.
