Day 4 of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is dedicated to tackling how Europe can deliver a fair energy transition for consumers, as well as the urgency of decarbonisation, and barriers to achieving it. Approaches to energy poverty, electrifying mobility and the role of taxation in the energy transition will all feature across the keynote speeches and policy sessions, before opportunities to consolidate the week’s discussions.
On the agenda today
- Towards energy-aware behaviours: how studies on young generations can inform better policy design: examining the best path towards large-scale changes in behaviour in the context of the European Year of Youth
- Local solutions to the energy crisis: empowering citizens through renewable energy communities: the benefits of and challenges to renewable energy communities through local examples
- International cooperation for energy resilient and decarbonised industries: how can Europe build partnerships with neighbouring countries to deliver solutions to global challenges?
- Challenges for decarbonising EU industries: insights into what is needed to achieve a decarbonised industrial ecosystem in Europe
- Closing Session: Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager joins us to reflect on this week’s conversations and consolidate priorities for the energy transition

The best energy is the energy not used and secondly renewable energy produced locally for sustainability and energy independence - Claudia Canevari @Energy4Europe#EUSEW2022 developing #energycitizenship is crucial here, see project @EnergyPROSPECTSpic.twitter.com/xLNMyzYjMW— Karin Thalberg (@thalkarin) September 28, 2022
Proud to launch the Biomethane Industrial Partnership at #EUSEW!— Kadri Simson (@KadriSimson) September 28, 2022
We are at a critical moment for #EU’s #energy security. Russia’s manipulation of energy markets forces us to act. Developing home-grown green energy production is a perfect way to end our fossil fuel dependency. pic.twitter.com/xFi1OELq2B
.@sorcha_edwards shares examples from the #socialhousing sector that speed energy efficiency up. The Netherlands has put a clear scenario for decarbonisation so that housing providers can have a clear vision. Estonia has ensured low-interest loans for renovation. #EUSEW2022pic.twitter.com/vagixvSVzF— Housing Europe (@HousingEurope) September 28, 2022

🇪🇺 funding must be earmarked for the most vulnerable
⚒️renovation projects should be aimed at local populations to avoid rent increase
