► Can Energy Democracy goals guide the national energy policy designs and what are the requirements for this action? Can national energy policies linked-up with the national social policies?
► What are the available policy instruments worldwide that support the Energy Democracy movement? If those exist, are there concrete outcomes resulting the implementation of those policy instruments?
► What is the role of energy innovation in such social movements?
► What is the role of Energy Democracy advocates and what is the role of citizens and communities?
