14.00 ManagEnergy Networking Event

In this interactive session, we offer tailored information for energy agencies on how to create new opportunities for their organisations with the Green Deal. Come strengthen your network for new partnerships and be inspired by fellow energy agencies as they present their top programmes, projects and tools to trigger more sustainable energy investments in their regions and cities. Energy agencies play a key role in catalysing the process of change. Together, we figure out how!
