On 1 and 2 April 2019 we took part in the Energy Allies event in Nantes, France. The event was organised by the German Marshall Fund and Energy Cities. With local governments in the U.S. and Europe rallying to respond to the devastating effects of climate change, the organisers of this event proposed a dialogue on local energy transitions between civil society organisations of cities on both sides of the Atlantic.
On 30 March, representatives of several Polish cities, which follow a progressive policy with respect to the energy transition met in Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland. Prof Lowitzsch of European University Viadrina was invited to the meeting where he presented SCORE - in particular the pilot project in the Polish city of Slupsk and the application of the Consumer Stock Ownership Plan in a local homeless shelter.
