About us

RURENER is a European network of rural communities engaged in the energy transition. Our vision is to build a European Union self-conscious of the potentials of its territories, and especially its rural territories, to realize the energy transition. By addressing the energy issues, we promote a transversal approach of rural development. Through our members’ experiences, we highlight the crucial role of rural territories to make the energy transition a reality in Europe, and we seek to make rural territories’ voice heard and acknowledged in Brussels.
Our missions:

    • Be the voice of rural European communities in the fight against climate change
    • Promote the sharing of good practices and concrete cooperation between European communities.
    • Give these communities the tools to elaborate and conduct their energy strategy.
  • Promote technical, organizational and social innovations experienced in the field
