ManagEnergy: The map and the territory

What a busy time of year! ManagEnergy capacity building workshops are taking place across Europe; along with networking events on Community Energy , Innovative Financing , and Energy Transition . Check the events calendar to find a sustainable energy event near you!

Last week, ManagEnergy was in Venice for the very successful event on supporting cycling for liveable cities; live webstreaming from the event increased audience accessibility and already we have received many request for the presentations – with exceptionally high quality speakers evidencing the many positive effects of policies to support city cyclists. 

Nice that Ai Weiwei’s Forever Bicycles sculpture was installed at the venue!

Two days before ManagEnergy consortium partner Fedarene and the Energy Agency of Plovdiv held a workshop on financing energy efficiency for municipalities; bringing together EU, national and regional stakeholders.

This week ManagEnergy events include: the much-anticipated Innovative financing for energy efficiency and renewables (we’re hoping to livestream this one too – stay tuned!); Community energy across Europe – making it happen, and The energy transition at local level – all in Brussels.
