The Policy Conference is the most important European conference dedicated to sustainable energy policy issues. Sessions organised by the European Commission and energy stakeholders debate new policy developments, best practices and sustainable energy ideas, while networking events forge alliances. Outstanding projects are recognised at the Award Ceremony.

ARE will speak at a session entitled “Solidarity & Energy Communities, How Community Energy Alleviates Energy Poverty Both Rural & Urban.” The aim of this session is to explore the role of energy communities in tackling those societal challenges, with particular focus on best practice in Scotland and Denmark.

The event will highlight good examples of communities that has invested in renewable energy, where the benefit is kept and used locally. It will also give an overview of the challenges for sustainable energy communities and how new EU regulation can give sustainable energy communities the chance they deserve.
