Governments should listen and learn from energy communities

The 4th episode of our SCCALE 20-30-50 podcast series, hosted by Energy Cities, is out now! What can we learn from The Netherlands – especially on local cooperative heat – and what is still missing to better empower communities to take ownership and benefit from renewable energy production?

In this episode you will hear from Anatol Itten, Senior Policy Officer working for the Dutch government’s Ministry of Economy and Climate with a focus on citizen participation policy & Siward Zomer, who leads the Dutch federation of energy cooperatives Energiesamen (also partner of SCCALE 20 30 50). You will have the opportunity to learn more about the energy community situation in The Netherlands, a country where a lot has been done, but some elements are still missing to achieve a successful energy transition!
