Thanks to the European Green Deal, the EU has once again set itself up as global leader to fight climate change and aims to become carbon neutral by 2050. Economic growth would be dissociated from the use of resources, making the transition fair and inclusive for all. As a result, a Multi-Energy System Integration must be set up. So, what is the way forward for regions and cities in the energy transition? Which steps must be taken and how can the EU Green Deal support regional efforts towards fixed goals? What role could regions play in the locally-driven energy transition and how can EU funding (e.g. LIFE) help with this challenge? These are some of the questions that the ambitious projects PROSPECT2030 (Interreg Central Europe), E-Fix and C-Track 50 (H2020) aim to solve.
