BECoop

Knowledge Hub

Becoop is a Horizon 2020-funded project that aims to put communities in charge of their energy generation, in order to create a fair and people-powered energy system. Bioenergy is a big component of the project, as it is an innovative and not yet exploited to its full potential energy source. The project wants to fight climate change, create jobs, mitigate energy poverty, lower supply tariffs, reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions, ensure energy supply security and flexible energy systems.

Relation to DECIDE

The project sees energy communities and cooperatives (RESCoops) as the ideal framework; "they can empower a more effective, fair, and democratised clean-energy transition, leading to an increased social and consumer acceptance of RE developments".

CEESEN

Network

The Central and Eastern Europe Sustainable Energy Network (CEESEN) is an online platform created to facilitate communication and unite different energy actors in the regions.  With the support of the project partners and the wider involvement of the CEESEN network, organisations and individuals can start to design a sustainable future for their communities. The platform is a result of the H2020 PANEL2050 project (CEESEN platform, Energy Roadmaps and Action Plans promoting and supporting the transition towards a low-carbon community, training material and trainings) and will be further developed in the H2020 CEESEU project (project started in November 2020, development will be done by WWF Hungary). The CEESEU project’s aim is to produce training material and conduct training that helps municipalities to compile and implement the Covenant of Mayors' Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (SECAPs). The CEESEN platform counts about 2500 members (organisations and private members).

Relation to DECIDE

The CEESEN platform focuses on sustainability and on energy transition in particular, and energy communities and collective actions, the two pillars of DECIDE, also play a big part in CEESEN’s activity.

COME RES

H2020 Project

COME RES - Community Energy for the uptake of renewables in the electricity sector. Connecting long-term visions with short-term actions – is a project under the EU’s Horizon2020 programme, aimed at facilitating the market uptake of renewable energy sources (RES) in the electricity sector. Specifically, the project focusses on advancing renewable energy communities (RECs) as per the EU’s recast Renewable Energy Directive. COME RES takes a multi- and transdisciplinary approach to support the development of RECs in nine European countries; Belgium, Germany, Italy Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal and Spain.

Relation to DECIDE

COME RES directly works on and with Renewable Energy Communities in nine european Countries. The project explores the barriers and drivers for RECs in close exchange with local stakeholders. Good practices will be identified and transfered to to other regions taking local, regional and national specific contexts into account.

ECCO One Stop Shop

Platform

The purpose of the One Stop Shop (OSS) is to have a place where communities can access all relevant information regarding community Community Energy Projects quickly and effortlessly. The OSS connects users through a social media platform, which can be linked to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. Through this platform one can meet both professionals and individuals with experience in renewable energy and Energy Communities. Users can also browse the forum to share their knowledge and expertise on a range of topics pertinent to Community Energy projects.

Relation to DECIDE

Energy Communities are the main stakeholders targetd in OSS' platform, which is a good source of information on Collective Actions.

EU Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy

Network

The Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy Europe was lunched in 2008 and currently brings together thousands of local governments committed to implementing EU climate and energy objectives and to achieve European targets in the three main pillars of action: adaptation, mitigation and energy poverty. The initiative now gathers 9,000+ local and regional authorities across 57 countries, drawing on the strengths of a worldwide multi-stakeholder movement and the technical and methodological support offered by dedicated offices.

Relation to DECIDE

The Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy Europe focusses on Energy Communities and Collective Actions in its second and third pillar, which are mitigation and energy poverty. The target audience for projects and initiatives started in this framework are local authorities that can be both promoters and facilitators of Renewable Energy Communities and Collective Actions that might be interested in leveraging local initiatives in order to reach their climate goals.

Smart Cities Marketplace

Knowledge Platform

The Smart Cities Marketplace is a platform which was created by merging the former Marketplace of the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) and the Smart Cities Information System (SCIS). It is a major market-changing undertaking supported by the European Commission bringing together cities, industries, SMEs, investors, researchers and other smart city actors.

Relation to DECIDE

The Smart Cities Marketplace has thousands of followers from all over Europe (and beyond), many of which have signed up as a member. Their common aims are to improve citizens’ quality of life, increase the competitiveness of European cities and industry as well as to reach European energy and climate targets. They work with three pillars of action: Explore, Shape and Deal. Explore the possibilities, shape your project ideas, and close a deal for launching Smart City solutions.

Spoldzielnia Nasza Energia

Cooperative

Spoldzielnia Nasza Energia is the only energy cooperative so far in Poland. It was set up to tackle the problem of energy security by tapping into the potential of a network of agricultural biogas plants. The cooperative is a joint project by Bio Power Sp., Elektromontaz Lublin and four municipalities: Sitno, Skierbieszow, Komarow-Osada, Labunie. It is a private-local government initiative created in response to high electricity prices by system enterprises. Their task is to supply electricity and, if possible, heat and energy of public buildings as well as households.

Relation to DECIDE

They aim at ensuring energy independency and creating local, autonomous grids of biogas plants. They want to locally produce energy locally by using the agricultural potential and tackle the regional problem of energy provision and prices and the lack of investment in the region.

WinWind

H2020 Project

The H2020 project WinWind aims to increase the socially inclusive and environment-friendly market uptake of wind energy by increasing its social acceptance in regions where wind energy is scarce. 

WinWind

H2020 Project

The H2020 project WinWind aims to increase the socially inclusive and environment-friendly market uptake of wind energy by increasing its social acceptance in regions where wind energy is scarce. 

Relation to DECIDE

The project provides a clear handbook on how social acceptance of wind energy can be increased, as well as an online tool. Both are highly useful to energy communities working with Wind Energy and were  developed considering and involving energy communities.
