Policy brief 3: Strengthen public access and support vulnerable communities towards a just and sustainable energy transition

The European Green Deal emphasizes an inclusive and just energy transition, recognizing the necessity of ensuring that no one is left behind in the shift towards a greener society for all. However, achieving this goal faces challenges due to a complex policy and actor landscape, which can hinder citizens’ engagement and involvement in the transformational process. This is particularly true for more vulnerable communities in European societies.

To strengthen public access and support for a just and sustainable energy transition GRETA recommends policymakers to establish local and regional “Integrated Energy Citizenship Hubs” for citizens seeking information and support related to energy transition actions.
