Bioenergy Village Jühnde

Cooperative

Bioenergy Dorf Jühnde is Germany’s first bioenergy village to be entirely covered by renewable energy sources. Most members of the cooperative are locals. The village also catalyses other projects in the neighbouring region, whilst investigating further sustainability initiatives, including electric cars and wind power in Jühnde itself.

Relation to DECIDE

Bioenergy Dorf Jühnde is a prime example of an Energy Community, with a local heating network powered by a biogas and a biomass heating systems bringing energy to the households.

CLUE Project

H2020 Project

CLUE - Climate Neutral Urban Districts in Europe is an INTERREG IVC project with the main areas of work being in conceptualising, planning, demonstrating and replicating local user-friendly Energy Communities. CLUE is a consortium of local and regional authorities and universities from 9 European countries aiming to increase the local and regional capacity in policy development, in order to facilitate the implementation and assessment of new solutions and technologies for a low carbon economy in urban areas.

Relation to DECIDE

CLUE is developing a high-quality toolkit for planning and the operation of Local Energy Communities, which can be used as a model for new Energy Communities and energy systems.

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.

EWS Elektrizitätswerke Schönau eG

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.

Score Project

H2020 Project

SCORE is a project aiming to facilitate the co-ownership of renewable energy for consumers. Its work extends in three pilot regions in Europe (in Italy, the Czech Republic and Poland) and later in various European cities. The project highlights the potential that democratic participation models hold in the fight against energy poverty for the inclusion of women and low-income households, where these under-represented groups participate as prosumers through financial empowerment rather than through social protection. 

Relation to DECIDE

SCORE is formulating policy recommendations at the EU and national level to promote prosumership, with a particular focus on the inclusion of women and low-income households and the removal of barriers for consumers to become active market players. The project does that by carrying out extensive research on Energy Communities and Collective Actions.

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.
