Contributors will present their own strategies and projects related to different aspects of energy transition, such as mobility, energy efficiency in buildings and use of renewable, clean energy sources.
Audience members will get to exchange views with the panellists on the way the EU could consider local and regional suggestions for the future policy framework post-2020.
