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.

Courant d'air

Cooperative

Courant d'Air is a Belgian social enterprise pursuing projects in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures. They currently operate 6 wind turbines and have made its first investments in photovoltaics, whilst setting up their first alternative mobility project with a shared electric car. One of the cooperative’s main concerns is raising awareness among citizens, especially young people, about renewable energy and energy efficiency. It has developed an education programme called Generation Zero Watt to incite future generations to be zero watt.

Relation to DECIDE

Courant d'Air is  an energy cooperative active in East Flanders, and they are part of the larger network  of REScoop Vlanderen.

MUSE GRIDS

H2020 Project

MUSE GRIDS is a project that aims to demonstrate the concept of a “smart energy system” by putting together a set of technological and non-technological solutions targeting the interaction of local energy grids (electricity grids, district heating and cooling networks, water networks, gas grids, electromobility etc.) in order to enable maximisation of local energy independency. It does that by optimising the management of the production via end user-driven control strategies, smart grid functionality, storage and CHP and RES integration.

Relation to DECIDE

MUSE Grids will implement two large-scale pilot projects in in a European urban area (OSIMO) and a European rural area (OUD HEVERLEE), both with a weak connection with the national energy grid and energy markets. By doing this, they will demonstrate how to interconnect local energy grids; how to utilise synergies in the energy system to maximise efficiency, reduce costs, CO2 emissions and energy losses; and how to reach affordable energy independency mainly maximising local self-consumption based on RES.

ROLECS

H2020 Project

ROLECS is a research project that intends to gain a deeper understanding of the development and the role of Local Energy Communities (LECs) in Belgium. Funded by public Flemish institutions, it involves 23 companies and 4 knowledge institutions. The project aims to provide answers to questions relative to, amongst others, triggering end-consumers participation to LECs, integrating technical energy models to social behaviors and defining the impact of large scale roll-out of LECs regarding the decarbonization of the energy system.

Relation to DECIDE

ROLECS strives at testing theory on 10 complementary energy communities pilot sites where key questions can be asked, such as: ​Which type of data to collect?
What type of tariffs works with end-users? How to control and operate to maximise potential of energy exchange? ROLECS'
prime target is to optimise the local energy flows to reduce the current grid costs, and to realise the electrification of the energy system while respecting the constraints of the existing distribution grid.
