Natural Gas-Free Neighbourhoods Workshop

An energy system that is no longer dependent on fossil fuels requires close collaboration of us all - from states to municipalities. The EU partnership Driving Urban Transitions (DUT) aims to share knowledge and create a strong community around urban transitions. Within the Dutch ‘Natural Gas Free Neighbourhoods’ (PAW) programme, city districts are currently trialing different methods to achieve this transition to a low-carbon energy system.

At the two-day Natural Gas-Free Neighborhoods workshop in Rotterdam in October 2022, you will get the opportunity to have a first-hand look at these projects, share your experiences and become inspired to start your own transition in your local environment! The workshop contains visits to local gas-free pilot projects, key-note speakers and in-depth sessions where you will be able to exchange insights with the people who are leading the transition – both from the Netherlands and other countries in Europe.

So, join us in October and see for yourself what there is to learn from the Dutch approach to a natural gas-free energy system with municipal, regional and national actors from all over Europe!
