The event will focus on citizens and the solutions they can access or put in place. It will take stock of what has been done during the energy crisis by local actors and citizens to better protect and empower household consumers and explore the building blocks for a more resilient energy system and future where all consumers can reduce and steer their demand, as well as access affordable renewable energy, including energy poor and vulnerable households.
Active participation at the Forum will be facilitated through Sli.do polls, citizen testimonies, hands-on, informative and inspiring examples of consumer actions, and lively discussions in break out groups.
Back-to-back with the Forum, there will be two events for specialised audiences at the EU and local level, the day before and the day after. A closed-door Regulatory Roundtable on EU consumer policy on 8 November and the Joint Closing Conference of the Energy Communities Repository and Rural Energy Community Advisory Hub on 10 November.
