A seminar was a chance to discuss an issue of energy cooperation at a local level seen from different perspectives.

Together with Thomas Bauwens (Laboratory on Human-Environment Relations in Urban Systems, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), Dirk Vansintjan (President, REScoop.eu), and Lieven Deswaef (Board Member, Coopstroom) we presented it for registered participants of the seminar.

Among topics that were addressed one may find the development of energy cooperatives in Europe, EU energy law on energy cooperatives, goals and activities of the European Federation of Renewable Energy Cooperatives, as well as goals and activities of Coopstroom in Bruges.
