EU City Lab on Energy Transition
This City Lab is co-organised by EUI and URBACT and will take place from the morning of 23 November, until the afternoon of the following day.
Hosted in Viladecans, a Spanish city that is 20 minutes away from the centre of Barcelona by public transportation, participants will be welcome from all over Europe and live translation Spanish-English will be provided.
Under the VILAWATT Urban Initiative Actions’ project, the municipality of Viladecans had the exquisite opportunity to develop an energy citywide strategy, as well as to explore alternatives for citizen engagement and retrofitting buildings. With the URBACT Transfer Mechanism pilot, the city could further refine actions, while learning and exchanging with three project partners.
The work of this network also reflected on the possible ways to implement the European Commission's Clean Energy for All Europeans Package (2020), which recognises the rights of citizens and communities to engage directly in the energy sector.
Come hear from the Viladecans' voices and many other cities on how to take the leap towards the energy transition!
