RURENER in the CR: informally but yet
An informal national RURENER club establishment was agreed in February 2013 on the occasion of Mayors Forum "Energy and Village" in Prague.
It works under the Association for Rural Renewal of the CR and offers meetings for mayors and municipalities technical staff who are interested in energy transition. They participate on different workshops, discussions or exhibitions where our project team in co-operation with organizers prepares usually a compact block of lectures on RURENER issues. So mayors (especially these from small villages who have their regular job and currently lead the municipality) can get more information and experience at less events on less places. A special section on the Association website is instrumental towards experience exchange and promotion of European actions too since from June 2014 is the Czech club an official member of the European RURENER network. An occasional interest of some villages in best practices of a way towards energy self-sufficiency outlasts and the Association is prepared to continue its work in this field after the project end.
