by Adrian Hiel

Member states governments are moving faster than expected. As of writing 22 of the 28 EU member states have now signalled that they are willing to accept a target of net zero by 2050. The six remaining holdouts are Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, (...)

National Energy and Climate Plans fail to acknowledge cities' leading role in...
by Aurélien Sailler, Floriane Cappelletti
19 Jun 2019 at 12:48am

Our analysis of EU Member States' National Energy and Climate Plans reveals lack of recognition towards local action.
The draft versions of EU Member States' National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) were to be submitted by the end of 2018. Yesterday, 18 June, the European Commission submitted a review of the plans. EU officials expressed their concern about the plans failing to reach their targets and provided advice on how to fill in the gap to ensure meeting the objectives of the Paris (...)

It was unprecedented in its breadth and ambition, more than 210 mayors from across the EU calling on EU leaders to chart a course for a net-zero EU by 2050 just ahead of the Future of Europe conference in Sibiu, Romania.
Never before had so many mayors representing so many people (over 62 million EU citizens) been unified in their demands.
Net-zero is a transformative goal and requires commitment from as many stakeholders as possible. As the elected officials closest to the people of (...)

New guidebook: How cities can unleash the power of community energy
by Adrian Hiel
14 Jun 2019 at 12:01am

The community energy landscape in Europe has been radically transformed by the Renewable Energy Directive. The new landscape will only be fully mapped as communities explore the boundaries of their new role in the energy transition.
Energy Cities has put together a guidebook ?HOW CITIES CAN BACK RENEWABLE ENERGY COMMUNITIES' to help communities with that exploration. And there has never been a better time for local authorities to get involved in community energy projects. The potential to (...)

Political brief : "From progressive minority to critical mass"
by Claire Roumet
11 Jun 2019 at 2:26am

Right after the EU elections, this title might be confusing. Indeed, it does not refer to the new EU Parliament, but to the legacy of the last 5 years. There are so many articles about the new impossible equilibrium between antagonist political forces, and what will emerge is so difficult to actually predict that I'd rather come back on what has been achieved.
And from a ?local energy transition? perspective, the less we can say I that the new legal, political and EU financing landscape is in (...)

EU Parliamentary elections: Will the "Green wave" set a course to a sustainab...
by Adrian Hiel
28 May 2019 at 8:43am

The big story of the EU Parliamentary elections is without doubt the ?Green Wave' that washed over much of Europe. With 70 seats the Greens now have a chance to hold the balance of power in the European Parliament and a more prominent role in the selection of the top jobs of the EU institutions.
The surge underlined that important geographical differences exist in Europe as the Greens failed to advance in the east or south of Europe.
With significant losses, the EPP and S&D remain the (...)

EU Parliament elections ? most important ever?
by Adrian Hiel
23 May 2019 at 12:21am

The European Parliamentary elections at the end of this month may be the most important ever. It's not that the Parliament has gained any extraordinary new powers ? it is because we live in extraordinary times.
Scientists have been clear that we have until 2030 to avoid catastrophic climate change. The next Parliament will sit for the first five of those 11 years. If we don't make significant progress in that time the window for change becomes very small indeed. We cannot waste time on more (...)
