„Active citizens for energy independent municipalities“ project
The project is implemented with financial support in the amount of 143,297 euros, provided by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Financial Mechanism - www.activecitizensfund.bg .
The main goal of the project is to raise civic awareness in the municipalities of Kostinbrod, Panagyurishte, Tryavna and Dryanovo and energy democracy, through collective action to support the energy transition.
The EU Green Pact and the transition to green energy presuppose the implementation of social innovations for the active participation of citizens in the energy market. Energy communities, as a social innovation for collective energy action, provide for open, democratic participation and governance and provide benefits for members and the local community.
The leading organization of the project is the Association of Bulgarian Cities and Regions /ABGR/.
- "Institute for Entrepreneurship, Sustainable Development and Innovation" / IESDI /;
- "Bulgarian Energy and Mining Forum" / BEMF /;
