Uppsala events on civic energy

The Swedish COBEN partner Uppsala municipality held two events to spread the project results and discuss the lessons learned
Uppsala municipality were very engaged in the COBEN project and held two final seminars for their stakeholders in September 2022. The first seminar was for internal colleagues at the municipal organisation. The second was for stakeholders from various organisations in Uppsala, but the word spread and people from other regions in Sweden joined as well.  
During the seminars they presented the results from the COBEN project and gave examples from the other COBEN partners’ pilot projects to discuss what has been learned from the differences between the energy communities initiatives in the consortium. One point of discussion was that several countries in Europe have already a more developed market and concept for energy communities than Sweden. They discussed further how they can continue work with energy communities in Uppsala in a broader perspectives and what role Uppsala municipality will have in future projects.
