About the Energy Days
Organised by local public and private organisations, Energy Days are activities and events that promote clean energy transition. Any activity can be an Energy Day – from a workshop, to a competition, to a tour of a power station – provided it engages citizens and energy stakeholders in building the Energy Union.
Innovative proposals are always welcome.
Energy Days take place throughout the months of May and June. They can last any length of time. Some last just a few hours, others a whole week. An Energy Day can also be repeated on different days to reach as many people as possible. The Energy Days map shows all activities taking place near you.
There is no official deadline. The only requirement is that your Energy Day takes place during May and June 2018 and that you submit it on time to benefit from greater visibility at the EU Sustainable Energy Week itself (4-8 June).
Activities and events take place throughout the 28 EU member states. Organisers can prepare an Energy Day for any size of area – from a local community to an entire region. Activities can take place in public or private buildings or even the open air. Previous events have been held in schools, market squares, conference centres, and many other places.
Anyone can organise an Energy Day. And they can be targeted at any audience; perhaps investors in new technology or families who want to promote clean energy. Support for organisers can be found in the Energy Day Organiser Toolkit.
Energy Days show citizens and business why sustainable energy is important – and help them discover the issues in the transition to secure, clean, efficient energy. The EU-wide visibility of Energy Days gives maximum publicity to an activity, while the communications and promotional support help to ensure its success.
