All over Europe, many cities are testing multiple ways to initiate, support and facilitate community energy projects. This document aims to showcase their actions and identify existing models of cooperation to inspire and provide guidance for local and regional policy makers willing to team up with their citizens to move forward the energy transition of their communities.
The document is structured in three chapters:
The guide is aimed at local and regional governments but energy communities can also use it to proactively approach their local authorities and propose them different collaboration models.
A guide that presents different options in which municipalities may be able to adapt their public procurement processes to better support energy communities.
A guide that identifies and shortlists practical examples of digital solutions for energy communities in different scopes of application.
Whether you don’t know where to start from or you are stuck with a specific issue in the development of your energy community, an expert can help you.
