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. will develop capacity-building tools for energy communities and provide advocacy expertise to the project.

Citizen-Led Renovation (II)

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.

European Climate Foundation – Grant Agreement No. 2005-60583.


Community Energy Toolbox

Together with Energy Cities, we have developed a toolbox to help foster collaborations between 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.

EUCEN Alogoweb


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.

European Climate Initiative of the German Ministry for International Collaboration (EUKI)



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.

cVPP - Community-based Virtual Power Plants

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. is responsible for capacity-building workshops and webinars, as well as the overall communication of the project.

Interreg NWE – Grant Agreement 588.



RE/SOURCED aims to set-up a microgrid (a so-called energy island) in Zwevegem, a small town in West Flanders. 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.

Horizon 2020 – Grant Agreement No. 957739.



STEPS aims to strengthen the competitiveness of North-West European SMEs working on innovative storage solutions. The project will deploy a user-centric, demand-driven approach that bring products closer to market. will contribute our experience from FLEXcoop, cVPP and REScoop VPP to show how cooperatives can implement storage solutions.

Interreg NWE – Grant Agreement No. 1102.


Agro Fossil Free

Agro Fossil Free will show how farmers and the agricultural sector can benefit from innovative business models that help mitigate climate change and decarbonise our economies whilst keeping value in the local communities. will support the mapping of relevant actors and stakeholders, the overall communications and the policy work at the EU level.

Horizon 2020 – Grant Agreement No. 957739.


Clean Energy For EU Islands

The Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat is an initiative on behalf of the European Commission to help islands drive a community-owned clean energy transition. The Secretariat provides technical support, capacity-building services and networking opportunities to EU islands.

Service contract with the European Commission (DG ENER).


Citizen-Led Renovation (I)

In close collaboration with Stefan Scheuer Consulting and the Coalition for Energy Savings, we set up a policy working group on energy efficiency and citizen led renovation, and provided advocacy expertise for feeding into the European policy debate on the topic.
