Due to the health crisis, the international conference Energy communities, self-production, self-consumption: frameworks, practices and tools scheduled for 15 and 16 June 2020 in Paris will take place in the form of a webinar from 15 June.
The date for submitting proposals on the website has been extended to 30 March 2020.

Expected communications could concern : actors coordination, energy systems regulation, effects of and on inhabited or transformed spaces, and multi-actor methods and tools. In addition to social sciences analyses (economics, sociology, urban planning, political science, etc.), we also expect proposals from design sciences.

Issues: Renewable and recovered energies are increasingly mobilized at the building, village or city level. At the same time, « energy communities » are emerging at the initiative of citizens with the support of local authorities, associations or companies. These transformations are reshaping spaces, institutions and norms governing energy networks, housing or cities and are pushing stakeholders to act. The aim of this multidisciplinary conference is to update and compare the framework, practices and tools of energy communities, which are considered here as local mediation between production and consumption.
