FEDARENE Launches ‘Sustainable Regions in Action’: A Visionary Blueprint for Europe’s Energy Future

FEDARENE sets the stage for Europe’s energy transformation with the launch of ‘Sustainable Regions in Action’. As we confront global challenges, the pivotal role of European regions and their energy agencies becomes increasingly apparent. Join us as we navigate towards a resilient, sustainable energy future.

In the wake of global challenges, from the ongoing conflict in Ukraine to the pressing need for climate protection stewardship, the role of European regions and their energy agencies has never been more critical. FEDARENE is proud to present ‘Sustainable Regions in Action’ as a comprehensive guide, outlining our vision, mission, and political recommendations for the new members of the European Parliament and Commission.

FEDARENE President Julije Domac emphasizes, ‘In this new publication, we celebrate the achievements of European energy agencies, recognizing their pivotal role in driving the transition towards a sustainable energy paradigm. For our network, the highlight was undoubtedly the revision of the Energy Efficiency Directive, which mentions energy agencies as relevant stakeholders in local and regional planning and implementation for the first time in EU law. They are pointed out as key market facilitators at regional and local levels. They are acknowledged as key enablers of community-led energy initiatives and crucial support for one-stop-shop development. Let this brochure serve as a testament to the shared commitment of our regions, islands, and energy agencies, a source of inspiration for the challenges ahead, and the resilience and optimism that define the European energy community. As we embrace the energy revolution, we stand united in pursuing a sustainable, equitable, and thriving future for generations.’

Indeed, ‘Sustainable Regions in Action’ not only presents our vision and recommendations formalised in our federation’s Manifesto, but also offers ready-to-replicate and ready-to-upscale solutions from our members across all areas of the energy transition. From islands actions to renewable energy communities and innovative business models, these projects demonstrate the tangible impact of collaborative efforts towards a greener Europe.
