Just Transition Platform - Call for evidence and expertise on the governance of the cross-border and interregional energy transition best practices
Within the JTP, ECRN is collecting examples of the best practices of the cross-border and interregional collaboration on the energy transition.
The final goal is to collect a compendium on good practices on energy transition governance in cross-border/interregional cooperation; the compendium can support the share of knowledge between partners and stakeholders working in such areas and topics.
The chemical industry and its transformation into climate neutrality is a core priority for the JTP. Europe’s energy transition needs a systemic redesign to achieve its ambitious goals and climate neutrality by 2050. Energy systems will have to become smart, flexible, robust and renewable, prioritising energy produced locally and complementing it with longer-distance energy transport.
Such a systematic change cannot be achieved without the coordinated involvement of all relevant stakeholders and cross-border and interregional cooperation to speed up and scale up the energy transition of the European regions and the European chemical industry.
The huge benefits of sharing good practices and replicating existing solutions are undisputable. This approach reduces the time and costs of implementing innovative solutions.
The TJTPs are usually perceived as a regional/local strategy while there are numerous measures which need to be implemented in close cooperation with the state level and the neighbour regions' authorities, the cross-border regions included.
