The way forward…

We discussed new initiatives and projects, announced GNF’s transnational agreements and tandems formed within Co2mmunity. Announced GNF plans on dissemination and utilizing of created outputs and also invited RENCOP members to use and share those.

At the same time, we tried to raise discussion on how EU Green Deal funding could be used to boost community energy. We also had a touch to discussions on energy generation statistics. Now, there is no such component as community energy. We also discussed permission issues such as not harmonized practices in different municipalities/cities.

Our meeting-webinar has been closed on a positive note – thanking each other for already established partnership, nice conversations, arising  Community Energy agenda, and looking forward to continuing started work…
