Required by the EU Governance Regulation, National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) form the basis of the near-term European effort to combat the climate crisis and signal both the speed and direction of the transition to a low-carbon economy. The road to net zero emissions will result in substantial and transformational impacts on many parts of society. With this in mind, it is crucial that EU climate action be an open and transparent process; indeed, with the Aarhus Convention and its implementing legislation, public participation has become a legal obligation in the EU. Early and effective stakeholder engagement and consultation helps generate acceptance and buy-in thereby increasing the chances that the policies and measures detailed in the plans will be implemented to full effect.
A panel of expert speakers—Elisa Martellucci of Carbon Market Watch and David Donnerer of Energy Cities—will draw on their experiences with the PlanUp project, discussing the EU perspective as well as the dialogues it organized between stakeholders and ministry officials. The panel will be moderated by Matthias Duwe, Head Climate at Ecologic Institute.
