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.

EnergEtica Coop

Cooperative

EnergEtica Coop is a not for profit cooperative, part of REscoop.eu, that constitutes the ideal alternative to the big electricity companies by putting energy supply back in the hands of the people. They commercialise electricity generated by renewable sources and provide energy efficiency and self-consumption services. Their aim is to be able to produce enough renewable energy to meet the electricity needs of the cooperative’s members, as they currently only produce part of it.

GoiEner

Cooperative

GoiEner, which is part of REScoop.eu, has the goal to recover energy sovereignty for citizens by entering the sectors of the electricity sector that are currently liberalised, which are energy purchase and generation. The profits obtained from the commercialisation of green electricity among its members are reverted back to the cooperative, whose members then decide how to allocate the funds. In turn, the members are able to invest in renewable generation projects, the production of which will be consumed by the cooperative itself. 

Relation to DECIDE

GoiEner is about the collective generation and trading of electricity, which makes it fully compliant with the standards of Energy Communities.

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.

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.
