BECoop e-market environment

Networking platform

This tool, produced by the H2020-funded project BECoop, supports stakeholders when developing a community bioenergy project and defining the required services and activities for supporting their own cases. They will be able to identify other stakeholders to contact to carry out their project, see the experience of others and similar initiatives, etc. The e-market environment connects supply chain stakeholders to support the creation and operation of new and existing energy communities.

BECoop Knowledge Exchange Platform

Knowledge Exchange Platform

The Knowledge Exchange Platform, a one-stop shop, lifts collaboration barriers across regions and sectors and hosts a set of resources in the field of community bioenergy heating, freely accessible:

- A network of interest for stakeholders and experts to share knowledge and expertise with BECoop in key deployment stages, including validation, networking and knowledge exchange, comprising a forum,
- Bioenergy community cases with an observatory/atlas of RESCoops active in the field of bioenergy,
- A knowledge repository: an online source of information, tools and services in the field of community bioenergy heating,
- Access to all BECoop tools.

The platform facilitates cross-regional network dialogue and knowledge exchange among community stakeholders.

No commercial interest.
Expected users are technical experts, RESCoops, policymakers, investors, industry and business stakeholders.

BECoop self-assessment tool

Horizon 2020 Project

Designed for non-specialised, non-experienced users seeking to assess the current state of a cooperative/community bioenergy project, the tool supports various users (provider, facility operators, RESCoops, local/regional authorities, and more) by providing an evaluation methodology, a set of indicators, metrics, definitions and technical as well as business recommendations, after they answer few questions on the resources available, the activity that best represent their initiative, and more. A spider web rating visualises the final results.


The BECoop self-assessment tool supports communities in getting ready to tap the full bioenergy market potential, making them aware of the potential held by their projects. Users can assess the current status and future potential of community bioenergy, revealing and better understanding the gaps, maturity levels for the adoption of bioenergy heating, their level of community engagement, as well as the complexity of the existing framework for procurement and policy design. Recommended actions appear after the user has answered some questions, guiding them to supporting resources and a score will be assigned depending on the option chosen, building in a graphical output (a spider-net) the project outcomes.

Relation to DECIDE

The tool supports energy communities future or ongoing work.

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.

Community Power Coalition

Network

The Community Power Coalition brings together a diverse network of like-minded organisations who share a common goal of promoting the development of citizen and community ownership of energy in the urgent transformation towards a 100% renewable energy system. The Coalition includes associations representing energy cooperatives, networks of cities and local authorities, the renewable energy industry, legal experts and diverse environmental NGOs.

Relation to DECIDE

Lately, the Coalition has been focussing on the correct implementation of EU legislation regarding RED II and IEMD. All members are active in securing an energy transition with the citizens at its core.

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.

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.
