With the end of this year, the SCORE project is in its final spurt. All wheels are in motion to gather the results on which we can build for future endeavors. Despite the difficult pandemic situation, our final conference was successfully held in a hybrid format. In addition, there have been numerous other events and news to report since then. As the SCORE project team, we would like to give you an overview in our final newsletter and thank you all the more for your interest.
SCORE Final Conference

The final SCORE conference has taken place in Torino, Italy on the 17th and 18th of November. Held in a hybrid format, representatives of European municipalities, EU institutions, associations, academia, international think-tanks and civil society contributed to this exciting event. Up to 200 people participated during those two days. The conference started out with a deep dive into the SCORE implementation and the introduction of pilot projects. Later on, the spotlight was on the SCORE Follower Cities as well as on associated projects. How to activate individual consumers to become prosumers was the main question which was discussed during the afternoon. On the 18th the focus was put mainly on opportunities and synergies of energy sharing for RECs and on business opportunities for professional actors from the energy world. A summary of the conference objectives and outcomes, the full list of speakers and their presentations as well as a recording of the conference are presented on our website.
