    Workshop: Designing smart and efficient energy policies with citizens at local level

    1 Square de Meeûs 1000 BRUSSELS
    Organiser: Others

    From 13:30 to 16:30.

    As part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week, the Lille Metropole will present this a participative workshop on efficient energy policies involving citizen participation.

    Most cities have one or several local programmes to help inhabitants and companies save energy. However, these programs often appears technical, red- tape-laden, time consuming with a high degree of uncertainty to reach actual retrofitting and ultimately energy (and money) savings. This session proposes to present diverse local and European projects using new methods to face the difficulties that cities have in designing local energy retrofitting services. New participatory methods are used to make sure programs are in line with people's actual needs and fight difficulties to involve stakeholders and consumers through traditional participatory methods.

    The workshop will be in French, but translation in English will be provided.

    Three cities's projects will be presented with a technical and governance focus:

    • AMELIO by Lille Metropole
    • AREA21 by HafenCity University Hamburg
    • STARDUST by Trento City
