While the European energy strategy and energy union, A Clean Planet for All, has a long-term view on how “Europe can lead the way to climate neutrality by investing into realistic technological solutions, empowering citizens, and aligning action in key areas, such as industrial policy, finance, or research, while ensuring social fairness for a just transition”, citizens also seek to make an impact in their daily lives. We all know we need to take steps towards a sustainable energy future, but some of us go further than others. ECN is happy to have been able to support CNBC International to work on this episode of Citizen Action – Sustainable Energy. In the TV episode, which was screened in Summer 2019 world wide, the viewer meets three global citizens who have set-up innovative projects to encourage and propel us all towards a cleaner, greener energy future. ECN provides background and explains how crowdfunding can be a key financial contribution to the European energy transition.
