Complementary workshops

WORK-SHOP 1: POWER COMMUNITIES AND REGULATORY SANDBOXES. ADMINISTRATIVE AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

To achieve the goal of decarbonization in the energy transition, it is necessary that we extend our innovation effort to the regulatory field. On many occasions, the rapid progress of technological innovation requires regulatory development that hardly occurs at the same speed. On the contrary, in cases where regulatory frameworks have been ahead of technological changes, they have sometimes entailed an administrative burden and added market entry costs. These circumstances frustrate potential new business models that could bring great benefits to stakeholders in the energy transition.

In this workshop participants will work in a simulated way on the first three phases of the application of a regulatory sandbox in the energy sector, based on an idea agreed upon by the people attending the workshop.

Aimed at: representatives of public administrations, ICT sector, university community, installers and users.

Location: Sala Bulevar

WORK-SHOP 2: LEGAL FORMS, GOVERNANCE MODELS AND INNOVATIVE FINANCING SYSTEMS

The challenge of this Workshop No. 2 is to identify the priority strategic lines to ensure both the economic and social viability of the energy communities in Navarra.

It is proposed to use participatory dynamics to investigate the priorities in the strategic lines included in the draft plan for the promotion of energy communities in Navarra. The lines related to legal forms, governance models and innovative financing systems will be taken into consideration and new strategic lines suggested by the participants themselves in this work-shop will be assessed.

Aimed at: representatives of public administrations, legal advisors, financial entities and users.

Location: Sala Ciudadela.

WORK-SHOP 3: PROCESSING OF COLLECTIVE SELF-PRODUCTION FACILITIES. ENABLING FRAMEWORK FOR ENERGY COMMUNITIES INITIATIVES

There are rights established by legislation to ensure that citizens can get involved in initiatives related to energy communities and it is the responsibility of governments and public administrations to ensure that there are no barriers that prevent their development.

In this Workshop, a participatory dynamic will be proposed to identify obstacles and challenges in the development of energy communities by the different actors who participate in the technical-administrative procedures and their implementation.

Based on this diagnosis, work will be done to find solutions and possible measures to be implemented or transferred to the administrations themselves for their incorporation into legislation, in order to promote a stable legal framework that guarantees the development of energy communities.

Aimed at: representatives of public administrations, distribution companies, trading companies, engineering companies, installers and users.

Location: Sala Cámara.

WORK-SHOP 4: PROMOTION, DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF EC ROLE OF REGIONAL AND LOCAL ENTITIES AND ENERGY AGENCIES

Public administrations must play a dynamic, promoter, financier and facilitator role at the EC. The regional and local public energy agencies constitute the best instrument for this purpose, given their versatility, their role as enforcement arm of the public administration, their experience in various technological, legal and economic areas, and their precise knowledge of the regional and local reality of the area in which they operate.

The aim of this Workshop is to identify and discuses the necessary mechanisms to facilitate the promotion and materialization of a EC by local and regional entities and energy agencies.

Aimed at: representatives of public administrations, energy agencies, development agencies and local action groups.

Location: Sala Ciudadela.

WORK-SHOP 5: CITIZEN RESPONSE TO CLIMATE CHANGE THREAT

We need a very different energy system, a decarbonized, decentralized and democratic system, with a greater presence of renewable energy sources. For this reason, raising awareness among citizens to promote or be part of energy communities is an important step to favor collective changes.

However, the implications and benefits of energy communities need to be properly disseminated. And for this, it is very important to properly understand them and thus be able to communicate rigorously and generate hopeful dynamics.

Therefore, taking into account that it is necessary that each person contribute from their own field to socialize the concept of energy communities, in this Workshop it aim at articulating an argument that favors the understanding of the concept by society, through a dynamic group to inquire about the most relevant messages to spread.

Aimed at: representatives of public administrations, representatives of social agents and any other interested sector.

Location: Sala Bulevar

WORK-SHOP 6: SOCIAL INNOVATION STRATEGIES TO CREATE CITIZEN PROJECTS ON ENERGY COMMUNITY

Social innovation strategies, which are fundamental for the creation and consolidation of ECs, should also serve to evaluate non-financial benefits, strengthening neighborhood ties and increasing people’s socialization. This with the multiplicative benefits that this entails in other areas, such as the reduction of non-voluntary loneliness, especially among the elderly, the possible early detection of situations of gender violence, the promotion of local networks and local consumption, synergies with other community initiatives, etc.

What if we promote a network that brings together project leaders, social leaders, citizens, professionals and communities, all of them committed to the development of citizen and participatory renewable energies?

A group dynamic is proposed to collectively inquire about the main steps that a citizen renewable energy project could consider, identifying methodological and support tools that should be considered to create it.

Aimed at: representatives of public administrations, representatives of social agents, citizens and any other interested sector.

Location: Sala Cámara.
