In the first episode of RegEnergy Talks you will gain insights into the challenges and opportunities of local energy communities and hear about institutional partnerships with backcountry communities and the cooperational work within these regions.
RegEnergy - Renewable Energy Regions
Strong partnerships to connect urban demand & rural supply
NWE is one of the EU’s highest energy consuming regions. The share of renewable energy in the region’s production and consumption mix is low and there is a strong dependence on non-renewable energy sources.
RegEnergy aims to break up existing structures for increasing the use of renewable energy in NWE regions. Creating renewable energy demand–supply partnerships between urbanised and surrounding rural territories will lead to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 9 projectpartners from 7 NWE countries, representing metropolitan regions, cities, rural communities, regional agencies, scientific institutions and renewable energy producers will develop strategies and models to illustrate how such partnerships can be built. In three strategic areas the missing regional links between demand and supply from renewables will be addressed: The institutional and administrative framework conditions (e.g. cooperation agreements) as well as the main infrastructure (e.g. biogas pipelines) that such partnerships require are as central as the question of required technologies (e.g. smart grids, storage capacities).
Pilot partnerships in across Northwest-Europe will invest in
- Institutional arrangements for regional prosumers
- lacking renewable infrastructure
- regional supply-demand chains
- coping with limited grid capacity and intermittent RE supply
- balancing regional supply and demand profiles
To sustain and widely spread the results RegEnergy partners will present best-practice and showcases to cooperating regions and will actively help them to develop appropriate RE demand-supply partnerships in their region.

A greener Europe will require local and regional authorities to increase the share of renewable energy in their production and consumption mixes. This workshop will explore how regions and cities can join forces with rural communities to create renewable energy partnerships. Such partnerships help cities meet their demand for renewable energy from reliable regional supplies while strengthening the economic resilience of rural communities.
This session will compare the various green electricity offers, highlighting their benefits and the issues around which buyers should be made aware. It will also explore the use of Contracts for Difference arrangements to support new renewable energy projects, along with a discussion of procurement arrangements.

This seminar will explore elements of the EU’s Clean Energy Package (CEP) and the initiatives set up as part of that, such as the Renewable Energy Directive and the Internal Electricity Market Directive, what they mean for the Smart Grid of the future, how prosumers can be at the heart of it as well as looking at developments in some EU jurisdictions to date.

From 28-30 April over 40 RegEnergy partners and interested parties met online - instead of in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland) as planned - to discuss the management of microgrids, the role of local energy communities as well as the RED II and many more.
The first Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) impact event focused on the results achieved by the NWE projects funded so far, and how to further support their uptake and impact.
The “Zukunftsforum Energiewende” is Germany’s largest congress for decentralised energy system transformation players. Representatives from local and state politics, administration, business and science meet here to jointly set fresh impulses for energy system transformation and climate protection.
On 29 and 30 November the Dutch partner Waterstromen invited the RegEnergy project team to Arnhem and Doetinchem.
