But how to reach these goals? As EYEN, we believe that increased youth engagement can and should play an important part in the energy transition. That is why since 2023, EYEN is a member of REN21 - the network that supports and accelerates the development of renewable energy with more than 100 members from industry associations, to academia, NGOs and governments.  🚉 This 17th and 18th of March, Carlotta Ferri, Vice-President of EYEN, travelled to Berlin for the annual Strategic Meeting of REN21, which aimed at drawing the vision and action plan of the network for 2025. From this meeting, EYEN takes home: ✨The encouragement of seeing the power of all players at the table, dedicated to the common cause of accelerating renewables, each one in their own way. 🤝 The importance of maintaining critical thinking, equity, transparency, and democratic values while we embark in a transition that brings big challenges. It is not only important to move ahead with renewables, but how we do it. Only by shifting from self-interest to fairness and sustainability we can avoid the mistakes of the past.  🏛 The belief that the energy transition is a multi-stakeholder challenge. That's why it's important to continue to foster dialogue across sectors, expertises, geographies and... ages. Find out more about how REN21 helps creating a common knowledge around renewables here below with its Global Status Report👇 The renewables sector is fast growing, so much that it can be difficult to keep track of the developments on renewables around the world. Part of the mission of REN21 is building knowledge on what's happening around the world in the energy sector. 👉  Every year, REN21 compiles its Renewables Global Status Report, a trusted overview on the state of renewables. The Global Overview for 2024 of the report is just out! Here a sneak-peek of some key takeaways:  💡From 2022 to 2023, the number of people without access to electricity fell from 756 million to 745 million.  🌎 Grid investments are not matching investments in renewables, and that makes it so that a lot of renewable projects are ready, but are waiting to be connected to the grid in order to be fully functional. ⛏️ The critical minerals needed for renewable energy technologies, electric vehicles, and electricity networks saw a surge in demand - including a tripling in lithium demand, a 70% increase in cobalt demand and a 40% increase in nickel demand. Despite a drop in prices, many remain costly.  Read the complete report overview here!  Watch the launch of the Report with Rana Adib - Executive Director of REN21 and many other stakeholders commenting on the report 🌍 Clean Energy for EU Islands Forum 2024: last call for funded participants 🏝️ 🏝️ Islands all over Europe are accelerating their clean energy transition, and their stories are truly inspiring! To accelerate their journey, the Clean Energy for EU Islands Initiative is connecting islands on their journey to clean energy with technical support, capacity business activities and networking opportunities.  Their Annual Forum this year is held in Pantelleria - Italy - on 14th and 15th May 2024, and it gathers representatives from 30 islands and islands groups and stakeholders from the energy community and ecosystem, to discuss crosscutting issues and build connections to accelerate the deployment of clean energy. 🤝 To get inspired by successful stories of renewables and islands - including Pantelleria, with site-visits, and meeting local stakeholders - get insights on the latest policy and legislation that supports islands, and build a network on these topics, register to participate to the forum (both online and in person) here!  [LAST CALL] If you are an island representative, and part of a non-commercial organisation or a student of a relevant degree, you can apply by the 3rd of May to receive a travel grant to participate to the event on site. 📣 And don't forget to connect with EYEN while you are there!

Plus, a dedicated team started preparing our flagship event, EYEF2023.  Brussels hosts EYEN's second gathering 🏙️ What can you do with 2.5. days and a young team passionate about the energy transition? A lot! ✨🎉 Last June, the Secretariat and the Board of our Federation hosted its second-ever gathering in Brussels for its teams & task forces, discussed and aligned on the future and the present of the organisation. Through team-building workshops, we shared and listened to old and new colleagues, visited and exchanged with the EU institutions, whose engagement in youth and the energy transition is so important. 🤝 EYEN powers youth engagement at the European Sustainable Energy Week ♻️💡 Through 2023, EYEN continued its partnership with the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), the yearly event on renewables & efficient energy use organised by the EU Commission and energy stakeholders. At EUSEW we connected with professionals & EU institutions and participated in the Commission's European Youth Energy Day, which invited the first cohort of 30 Young Energy Ambassadors. Their own proposals to shape the clean energy transition were presented on the last day of EUSEW (rewatch here!) 📸  🤝This year, EYEN is contributing to the European Sustainable Energy Week for the 3rd year in a row, to bring youth voices to the heart of one of the main yearly events defining the implementation of the energy transition.  ♻️ We'd really love to see you there!

We have set out to change this. Since the creation of the Young Energy Consumers task force back in April, the team has been working with the clear objective of making young energy consumers more visible in energy consumer policies in the EU (check out their story for more!). 🚀 Their first focus of the task force was energy poverty, a topic that is particularly important for a just transition, and to ensure no one is left behind. After almost a year of research & cooperation with stakeholders, the team presented its findings and their solutions at the 15th Citizens Energy Forum in Dublin. Find out more on energy poverty's impact on youth, government policies & good practices in their report! 📑 Read the report on young energy consumers 📑 #EYEF2023: presenting 6 solutions for youth engagement in the energy sector 🦜 How do you create the space for youth to voice its opinion on the energy transition and collaborate with energy stakeholders towards concrete action? EYEN has been doing it since 2022 by organising its yearly European Youth Energy Forum (EYEF). Cause for the European energy transition to be just & inclusive, it needs to accommodate the needs and participatory rights of all.  Last November, EYEF gathered 40 young energy professionals of 30 nationalities at📍Fraunhofer Energy & Climate in Berlin with one goal: reviewing 6 solutions for better youth engagement in the energy sector out of the 12 developed during #EYEF2022. 📝  Youth, who are key actors in shifting the current paradigm and conventional procedures – with engagement, knowledge, legitimacy and diversity. During the online work preceding the event, and the 3-day conference in Berlin, stakeholders such as Statkraft, the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for Economics and Climate Action, the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, the German Renewable Energy Agency and Elia took the stage with participants 🎤and helped them design concrete roadmaps stakeholders are called on to implement across the education, policy-making and private sectors.  A sneak peek at (some) EYEF2023 proposals to boost youth in energy 🚀 🏛 The European Youth Energy Hub: a one stop shop for Youth Energy Engagement, is designed to deal with the need for skilled workers (a potential 270% increase compared to current jobs in energy) and the current fragmentation of the information on opportunities within the European clean energy sector. This labour and skills gap can be addressed by creating a comprehensive website for youth to discover civic engagement, educational and vocational, employment opportunities, and allow them to make an informed decision about future life choices. 🎓 EmpowerED – the University Module for Student-Led Energy Transition Workshops for high school pupils – codifies a syllabus for a module for third-level institutions and addresses the gap in knowledge about climate and energy related topics across youth. EmpowerED encourages intergenerational dialogue surrounding energy by having university students teach the module, and creates an inclusive space for orientation & education. 👉 Curious to know more?
