ore 14.00 -19.00         Aula Magna UNITS, Via Alviano 18, Gorizia

The Solidarity Renewable Energy Communities are favored by Legislative Decree 199/2021 which promotes the use of energy from renewable sources. They are an innovative model of production and self-consumption of energy from alternative sources to fossils, capable of integrating family income and reducing energy dependence. The session intends to develop awareness-raising initiatives to encourage the aggregation of solidarity communities, neighborhoods or condominiums, which share a sustainable local economic development plan and fight against energy poverty. 

The session aims to provide the information and technical knowledge to be able to develop energy community projects through the aggregation of supportive, neighborhood or condominium communities, in collaboration with all stakeholders (Local Authorities, companies, associations, etc.) that share a plan for sustainable local economic development and combating energy poverty. The afternoon will be organized in two parts: a lecture with experts in the field, followed by a workshop divided into four specific working groups aimed at exploring procedures regarding the possible start-up of energy communities.


Participation in the session is possible through registration on the following form.
