Potential for energy poverty alleviation through an inclusive and democratic European Green Deal 2.0

45th Breakfast at Sustainability’s

20 February 2024, 10:15 - 12:00
Brussels, Belgium- In person and Online; Rue du Luxembourg 19, 1000

The 44th and 45th editions of ICLEI's flagship Breakfast at Sustainability's series are organised as a set of events on the topics of inclusion, justice and democracy in the energy transition in Europe.

Phasing out fossil fuels to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 offers a unique opportunity to transform our energy systems for a more socially fair and democratic EU. Diverse forms of citizen involvement and engagement in energy projects are already surging across the EU, including many energy poverty alleviation activities within communities.

The upcoming European elections are a good opportunity to highlight innovative solutions that could help mainstream social inclusion in the energy transition in a more coherent and comprehensive way. This hybrid event, co-organised with the Jacques Delors Institute, will gather input from the Sun4All and EnergyPROSPECTS projects, as well as from a variety of stakeholders, to set the scene for an inclusive and democratic European Green Deal 2.0.
