Background

Local governments are playing an increasingly important role in the transition towards renewable and decentralized energy systems. With their central role in transport and land use planning, as well as proximity to key stakeholders, local governments are well equipped to accelerate energy innovation. But many local governments in Korea are facing challenges at the initial stage of the transition mainly due to the lack of knowledge and experience.

This conference is designed to support Korean local governments, especially Daedeok District government in developing proper measures and policies to achieve the transition from fossil fuel to renewable energy as well as to low-carbon and sustainable city, by sharing energy transition cases of European local governments.
