Devising concrete actions to implement the European energy dialogue
This study operationalises the concept of a European Energy Dialogue (EED) and describes it such that it can be discussed with the stakeholders that should be involved in its implementation. The objective of the EED is to enable stakeholders to work with civil society by providing the necessary structured and validated approach, to mobilise civil society to be more closely involved and to connect the many dialogues taking place at national, regional, city and local level. To this end the EED will: - establish and advocate agreed, trusted underlying principles; - provide a framework to connect... and leverage existing initiatives for including civil society; - support, facilitate and accelerate the process of involving and mobilising civil society; - address the key issues of public interest. An EED of this kind will encourage the main stakeholders to include civil society in the energy transition, mobilise civil society, provide guidance for governance on key topics of public interest, develop an informed support base to enable constructive political action, and accelerate the energy transition.
