Workshops on tracking-related policies for consumer organisations
In order to increase the interest of consumer organisations in the issues covered by the project, two workshops for energy experts from European consumer organisations will be organised. The objective of these workshops is to explain the relevance of tracking-related policies and tracking systems to the participants, and to assist the participants in developing joint positions on the consumer requirements for tracking systems and related policies. Where possible, these workshops will be held back to back with major European consumer conferences in order to make it easier for the experts to participate. be found below.

National consultation workshops

For most of the 29 European countries, a separate full-day workshop will be held. The only exception will be a Nordic workshop, which will be held jointly for Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. This exception is based on the stronger integration of the Nordic power market, and related policies, compared to other regions in Europe. Therefore, a total of 26 workshops will be held across Europe The target group for the workshops include the following actors from the respective countries:
. Government officials, regulators
. Transmission System Operators (TSOs)
. electricity generators and suppliers
. electricity traders and operators of power exchanges
. consumer and environmental NGOs
. representatives of large consumers (industrial, commercial and public).
