The EU-funded EU4Energy Programme this week (3-7 October) holds the Autumn Digital EU4Energy Week for Eastern Partnership (EaP) Universities 2022.
The event will serve as a platform where future energy professionals from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine will have the opportunity to engage in discussions on the clean energy transition in Europe with experts from the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER), the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Energy Community Secretariat (EnCS), and EU4Climate.
In a series of five sessions, students will learn about the fundamentals of energy policy, EU regulation to support the clean energy transition in Europe, long-term energy planning, and the role of statistics in measuring the successes and failures of public policy.
They will also understand consumer empowerment and learn more about energy poverty and vulnerability resulting from a combination of low income, high energy bills/price and low energy efficiency, especially with regard to building efficiency.
In addition, this year a separate session will be held by the EU4Climate programme run by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). It will focus on Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) aimed at reducing national emissions by countries and adapting to the effects of climate change.
Participants will also take part in a competition, the winner of which could participate in a CEER training course in Brussels in 2023.
This series of events is organised within the framework of the ‘EU4Energy Phase II – Promoting Clean Energy Transition in the Eastern Partnership countries’ initiative, which aims to contribute to the development of sound energy legislation and regulation, support the region’s transition to clean energy and liberalise its energy markets.
With a total budget of €8.5 million, the EU4Energy programme is jointly implemented by the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER), the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Energy Community Secretariat (EnCS).
