Attica Energy Community was established in October 2019 as a cooperative whose aim is to produce and consume clean energy collectively and implement green solutions in their everyday life.

The main objectives of Attica Energy Community are:

  • Reducing energy costs for its members
  • Application of the cooperative principles in the energy sector
  • Research, experimentation, training seminars, and dissemination of know-how for innovative green solutions
  • Do business with a social dimension
  • Achieve equality of membership – elimination of discrimination of any kind
  • Support innovation in the energy sector through training workshops and seminars
  • Cooperation with academic institutions, local authorities, and other energy cooperatives

In 2022, the cooperative completed a full economic and technical study for the creation of a photovoltaic park that will operate with the “Virtual Energy Netting” model.
