Cooperative enterprises put forward a decentralized energy system as a better solution for today’s energy challenges. To bring this discussion to a wider audience, Cooperatives Europe will host a film screening: “The fourth revolution”. This will take place at the fringe festival. The movie will be followed by a discussion panel consisting of:
Klaus Niederlander, Director Cooperatives Europe (moderator)
Colin Baines, Campaigns Manager, The Cooperative Group
Vanni Rinaldi, Legacoop
Martin Lowery, American Rural Electricity Cooperative Association
In addition, on Friday 2nd November from 9 am to 12, Cooperatives Europe will host a three workshop session: bringing together diverse panels of experts and key actors in the renewable energy field, we will explore how cooperatives are reshaping the energy market. More details can be found here.
