REScoop.eu is the project coordinator of SCCALE 203050, a Horizon 2020 project that aims to develop a set of tools, resources and coaching techniques to support the set-up and operation of energy communities. The project aims to strengthen the collaboration between energy cooperatives and local authorities including cities and municipalities.
A growing number of energy cooperatives are trying to alleviate energy poverty, bringing forward innovative schemes and business models. CEES aims to identify the existing best practices and wants to build a narrative around this important challenge. REScoop.eu is in charge of communication and EU policy work.
Through REScoop VPP, REScoop.eu will support the set-up of a community-driven virtual power plant that can actually provide flexibility services to the grid. REScoop.eu will organise workshops and manage a working group that gathers interested cooperatives, and manage the project's overall communication.

COME RES (Horizon 2020) will support, develop and test new business models for renewable energy cooperatives in nine EU Member States. REScoop.eu will provide policy support on the implementation of the Clean Energy Package (and the provisions for citizens energy communities and renewable energy communities) and support the overall dissemination through its network of cooperatives.

Compile will show how energy islands (microgrids) can help decarbonise our energy supply whilst creating environmental and socio-economic benefits. The project will cover optimal integration of RES technology including storage, foster the creation of energy communities and how to increase support for new technologies. REScoop.eu will develop capacity-building tools for energy communities and provide advocacy expertise to the project.
Horizon 2020 – Grant Agreement No. 824424
The main purpose of the project is to bring together cooperatives with expertise on citizen-led renovation, set up and manage a working group, feed into policy debates centered around energy efficiency and citizen led renovation, and explore synergies in terms of collaborations and EU funding.

Together with Energy Cities, we have developed a toolbox to help foster collaborations between REScoop.eu and Energy Cities members. Moreover, we are supporting Friends of the Earth Europe with the publication of a handbook on community energy and the organisation of an online training course for starters.

EUCENA aims to accelerate the energy transition in Central-Eastern Europe by setting up an annual summer school where energy communities can exchange experiences and learn new skills. The project will focus on Germany, Albania and Greece.

Ecco aims to accelerate the set-up of new energy communities in rural areas in North-West Europe, working in close collaboration with farmer organisations. As part of the project, we work closely with the city of Leuven and the province of Vlaams-Brabant to roll out the LICHT methodology, and support the set-up of new community energy projects in Flanders.

In the cVPP project, we create synergies between the
projects cVPP, REScoop VPP and FLEXCoop to ensure an effective implementation of demand-response solutions in energy communities. REScoop.eu is responsible for capacity-building workshops and webinars, as well as the overall communication of the project.

RE/SOURCED aims to set-up a microgrid (a so-called energy island) in Zwevegem, a small town in West Flanders. REScoop.eu is in charge of setting up an energy community that complies with the new definition which Flanders has to put in place.
Horizon 2020 – Urban Innovation Action - Grant Agreement No. UIA05-057
With the energy grid moving from a centralized to a decentralized system, energy communities will play an important role for implementing change in current operative business models. Through OneNET, we are liaising with 69 partners (mainly DSOs and TSOs) to explore how cooperatives can support the implementation of a decentralised energy system.
