Collective finance, or crowdfunding, is a mechanism through which people from within a town, country, the EU or even the world can make a financial contribution towards specific projects. In the energy communities sector, these projects look to create change at the local level, helping solve social, environmental or financial challenges.
Powerfund is an online tool that offers information on how to use crowdfunding to tackle energy poverty and support your project with collective financing. The tool has three main spaces:
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.
