Executive Director, Energy Cities
Claire Roumet is co-leading Energy Cities’ work on strategy and partnership.
Energy cities want a radical transformation of the energy systems and policies, giving our citizens the power to shape a decentralised and renewable energy future. We believe that the energy transition is not just about clean energy or great technologies: it is about wise use of resources while strengthening local participation and well-being in a democratic Europe.
Energy cities is a community of more of 1000 local pioneers located in 30 countries. We trigger a trustful dialogue between city leaders and EU&National institutions to accelerate the energy transition in Europe.
