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".

Relation to DECIDE

The Union has already developed 17 energy communities, according to a Greenpeace report. 10 of them will build wind projects with a capacity of 168MW, involving 1750 families. 7 of them will develop solar projects with a capacity of 126MW, involving 500 families.
