ENERTOWN aims to create a framework for knowledge which ultimately empowers citizens, as consumers, with the knowledge required to navigate the complexities of energy markets in the times of economic, climate and security crises and transformations.
The project goal is to raise awareness and to build competence at the level of public authorities, private entities active on the energy market, and civil society organisations on energy issues impacting the quality of life in small urban localities in Romania.
Community leaders will benefit from customised training programs, enabling them to consolidate their understanding and skills regarding renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable energy security solutions. They will be equipped to guide citizens by adopting both proactive and reactive action, by offering information in a manner that helps them make the most appropriate decisions for their specific situation.
Throughout the project, the relevant community stakeholders will become drivers of better policy-making, enablers of citizens’ empowerment in relation to energy markets and promoters of an informed change in attitude and behaviour towards energy.
