Our Energy

Online platform

Our Energy is an online platform providing short, expert-reviewed content for people that want to gather information and find more about clean energy communities. A network feature will be available for registered users in 2021, that way people will be able to exchange with other experts, best practice examples, policymakers etc. directly.

Relation to DECIDE

The platform is intended for energy communities and their members, for them to acquire new knowledge and advance.

ROLECS

H2020 Project

ROLECS is a research project that intends to gain a deeper understanding of the development and the role of Local Energy Communities (LECs) in Belgium. Funded by public Flemish institutions, it involves 23 companies and 4 knowledge institutions. The project aims to provide answers to questions relative to, amongst others, triggering end-consumers participation to LECs, integrating technical energy models to social behaviors and defining the impact of large scale roll-out of LECs regarding the decarbonization of the energy system.

Relation to DECIDE

ROLECS strives at testing theory on 10 complementary energy communities pilot sites where key questions can be asked, such as: ​Which type of data to collect?
What type of tariffs works with end-users? How to control and operate to maximise potential of energy exchange? ROLECS'
prime target is to optimise the local energy flows to reduce the current grid costs, and to realise the electrification of the energy system while respecting the constraints of the existing distribution grid.

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.

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.

Spoldzielnia Nasza Energia

Cooperative

Spoldzielnia Nasza Energia is the only energy cooperative so far in Poland. It was set up to tackle the problem of energy security by tapping into the potential of a network of agricultural biogas plants. The cooperative is a joint project by Bio Power Sp., Elektromontaz Lublin and four municipalities: Sitno, Skierbieszow, Komarow-Osada, Labunie. It is a private-local government initiative created in response to high electricity prices by system enterprises. Their task is to supply electricity and, if possible, heat and energy of public buildings as well as households.

Relation to DECIDE

They aim at ensuring energy independency and creating local, autonomous grids of biogas plants. They want to locally produce energy locally by using the agricultural potential and tackle the regional problem of energy provision and prices and the lack of investment in the region.

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.
