In the aftermath of the kick-off workshop of the transform! / Akademia Working Group on Energy, the diversity and the richness of the contributions led us to compile them into an e-book. It does not pretend to be exhaustive, but rather to nourish the necessary diversity of the on-going discussions within the European progressive political sphere, as well of those of social movements and trade unions. It will be available on free access on the website of transform! europe in December.
Under the auspices of MEP Cornelia Ernst (GUE/NGL), the transform! Working Group on Energy presented its latest publication to representatives of European progressive civil society and members of the European Parliament Committee on Industry, research and Energy (ITRE). Deployment of the energy transition towards a new model of development, energy democracy and citizens’ initiatives, the crucial role of public research – these issues were at the heart of the discussions held on June 14.
On 5 December 2016, transform! europe, the Brussels office of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and MEP Cornelia Ernst (GUE/NGL) held a European conference dedicated to the notion of a socially just energy transition.
