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".

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.

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.

EnergEtica Coop

Cooperative

EnergEtica Coop is a not for profit cooperative, part of REscoop.eu, that constitutes the ideal alternative to the big electricity companies by putting energy supply back in the hands of the people. They commercialise electricity generated by renewable sources and provide energy efficiency and self-consumption services. Their aim is to be able to produce enough renewable energy to meet the electricity needs of the cooperative’s members, as they currently only produce part of it.

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.

Cooperative

EWS Elektrizitätswerke Schönau eG is a multi-utility cooperative. In the late 1990s it was the first of its kind in Germany to take over the grid as well as electricity supply to the local community. When the electricity markets were deregulated in 1998, it started to sell almost exclusively renewable energy to its local electricity customers. The year after, EWS began to supply customers with green electricity on a nationwide scale. Nowadays, its activities also include the supply of natural gas and biogas.

GoiEner

Cooperative

GoiEner, which is part of REScoop.eu, has the goal to recover energy sovereignty for citizens by entering the sectors of the electricity sector that are currently liberalised, which are energy purchase and generation. The profits obtained from the commercialisation of green electricity among its members are reverted back to the cooperative, whose members then decide how to allocate the funds. In turn, the members are able to invest in renewable generation projects, the production of which will be consumed by the cooperative itself. 

Relation to DECIDE

GoiEner is about the collective generation and trading of electricity, which makes it fully compliant with the standards of Energy Communities.
