October 30, 2018
A co-creation Lab in the local area was held on October 30, 2018 focused on novelties in sustainable energy planning obligations at EU and national level.
In that context, CESBA MED project and indicators were briefly presented and CESBA European award for urban areas was announced. All participants agreed that there is a need for brave and innovative strategies from national level that will give clear guidance for local level what are the priorities and how to support them (e.g. which renewables should be strongly supported or even required, etc).
In that respect, it was also emphasised that we need to start using our fiscal system to stimulate sustainable solutions. Stronger communication between national and local authorities and experts working in the field is necessary to come to optimal solutions.
