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.

Energy Communities Hub

Knowledge Hub

The Energy Communities hub operated by Th!nk E in cooperation with partners of the DECIDE  project is a new platform to provide an overview of regulatory developments related to Renewable Energy Communities, and Citizens Energy Communities in all EU Member states. Furthermore it provides country comparisons and assessments. The hub is updated as the country regulation change

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.

Rescoop.eu

Network

REScoop.eu is the European federation of citizen energy cooperatives with the aim of empowering citizens and cooperatives that wants to achieve energy democracy. "REScoops" refers to energy cooperatives, business models where citizens jointly own and participate in renewable energy or energy efficiency projects; its citizens or Renewable Energy Communities.

Relation to DECIDE

The energy cooperatives that are part of RESCoop are all RECs. The organization supports starting and established energy cooperatives and provides them with tools and contacts to help them grow and prosper while spreading the coopearative model.

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.
