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".

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.

Energia Positiva

Cooperative

Energia Positiva is an Italian cooperative member of REScoop.eu aiming to offer better solutions to save money on electrity bills, whilst ensuring a better and greener future for everyone. The members of the cooperative share ownership of the renewable energy production plants involved in the project, becoming in turn owners of their own freely chosen "virtual" plant. Energia Positiva offers citizens the possibility to produce and use energy from renewable sources only.

Relation to DECIDE

Energia Positiva has achieved the development of 20 production plants and 6 energy saving installations

ènostra

Cooperative

ènostra is a non-profit cooperative electricity source that provides its members with renewable energy generated by solar, wind and hydroelectric plants with guarantee of origin. ènostra is a community enterprise, which means it is involved in projects and activities that not only impact its members, but benefit the community as a whole by increasing the share of energy produced through renewable sources in Italy’s national energy mix. It does that through programmes involving energy efficiency, implementation of photovoltaic systems and monitoring of consumption reduction.

Relation to DECIDE

All of ènostra’s energy production plants, be it photovoltaic, wind-powered or hydroelectric, involve the citizens through their direct participation.

Magliano Alpi

Renewable Energy Community

Magliano Alpi is a Renewable Energy Community (CER) born in Piedmont at the end of 2020 aiming at creating a new development model based on the production and the sustainable use of energy. Its goal is to revitalise and bring bak value to the territory after the COVID-19 pandemic by retrofit buildings and Energy Communities.

Relation to DECIDE

Magliano Alpi can be a good role model for DECIDE pilots and replicants to learn from an already established Energy Community, especially on regulatory issues.

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.

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.
