The LIFE-BECKON project, funded under the LIFE programme, is spreading its activities with an online event co-organised with the Covenant of Mayors (CoM) – Europe, focusing on the state of play of supporting mechanisms for local authorities to facilitate the creation of energy communities.

This webinar will feature the concept idea of the Technical Assistance Cookbook and the online One-Stop-Shop platform being developed on behalf of the LIFE-BECKON project. High-level speakers representing DG ENER (TBC) and the Energy Communities Repository will share updates on EU policy on energy communities and the support available to develop energy communities at the local level. Furthermore, the variety of national energy community frameworks is presented through examples from Bulgaria, Denmark and Spain, highlighting challenges and opportunities for local authorities. Participants will be invited to actively participate in the discussion, sharing concrete challenges and possible solutions.

Objectives of the webinar:

  • Present the overall idea and expected outcomes of LIFE-BECKON as supporting mechanism to deploy energy communities at local level
  • Show the variety of ECs frameworks at the national level, local challenges and possible opportunities
  • Collecting multi-level feedback and opinions which will contribute to the development of the LIFE-BECKON supporting mechanism in the three demo areas throughout the three years of the project’s implementation and beyond.
