CER Energy City Hall of the City of Magliano Alpi is a renewable energy community which aims to associate energy producers and consumers to satisfy their energy needs through their own production from renewable sources.
Established in December 2020, it is the first CER (Comunita Energetica Rinnovabile or Renewable Energy Community – REC in English) created in Italy under the 2018/2001 (REDII) European Directive.
As coordinator of the energy community, the municipality of Magliano Alpi installed a 20 kilowatts-peak (kWp) photovoltaic system on the roof of the city hall to satisfy its energy needs and share the remaining energy with the community members. The REC, which is currently composed of three public buildings and some individual neighbours, aims to grow in the upcoming years. They are planning to have more neighbours joining the project and build new PV installations in the sport centre and in a local industrial building.
CER Energy City Hall of the City of Magliano Alpi also develops the following activities:
