SmartEnCity at European Week of Regions and Cities 2020
The European Week of Regions and Cities is an three weeks event and showcases the capacity of cities and regions to create growth and jobs and to implement European Union cohesion policy and therefore proving the importance of local and regional level for good European governance. Meet SmartEnCity Follower City Asenovgrad on 15 October.
Ivanka Pandelieva-Dimova from Sofia Energy Centre will represent SmartEnCity (focus on Follower City Asenovgrad) as part of the workshop "Partnerships for Renewable Energy Regions":
What: A greener Europe will require local and regional authorities to increase the share of renewable energy in their production and consumption mixes. This workshop will explore how regions and cities can join forces with rural communities to create renewable energy partnerships. Such partnerships help cities meet their demand for renewable energy from reliable regional supplies while strengthening the economic resilience of rural communities.
Best-practice examples from the Interreg North-West project RegEnergy as well as from Eastern Europe will shed light on how to overcome regulatory and other barriers.
