Discussions on the clean energy transition have been ongoing for several years. Whilst the energy transition is urgent for rural communities, they remain at risk of being left behind as rural households are often impacted by a lack of access to grid heating infrastructures, increased risks of power cuts and an over-reliance on higher carbon, fossil heating.

To discuss what is at stake at EU level and how to reflect the needs of rural areas in EU legislation, Liquid Gas Europe is delighted to invite you to join an online webinar on the energy transition in rural areas, on Wednesday 5 October 2022 from 14:00 to 15:00 CET. The webinar will address important questions such as:

  • How to ensure coherence between social acceptability and climate policy objectives?
  • What are the implications of ongoing EU legislative developments regarding energy for rural communities?
  • What could be improved in some of the legislative proposals to effectively and immediately mitigate the challenges for homes in off-grid areas?
  • What are the sustainable energy solutions that are better suited to rural communities?

Speakers include:

  • MEP Franc Bogovič (EPP, SI) – Co-president of RUMRA Intergroup
  • Hanna Zdanowska – Mayor of Łódź, Member of the European Committee of the Regions
  • Seamus Boland – Chief Executive Officer at Irish Rural Link
  • Ewa Abramiuk-Lété – General Manager at Liquid Gas Europe
  • A member of cabinet of Kadri Simson, Commissioner for Energy (tbc)
