About CE-EC online conference
Energy communities for collective self-consumption / Communautés énergétiques, autoproduction, autoconsommation : cadrages, pratiques et outils
June-December 2020 - Online
Renewable and waste energies are increasingly mobilized at the building, village or city level. At the same time, "energy communities" are emerging at the initiative of citizens with the support of local authorities, associations or companies. These transformations push actors to act or react and modify the spaces, institutions and norms governing energy networks and housing. International speakers (Europa, Asia, Americas) from social sciences (economics, sociology, urban planning etc.) and design sciences (electrical, thermal and computer engineering, etc.) will propose, compare and update knowledge on the frameworks, practices and tools of energy communities, considered here as local mediations between production and consumption.
