The project aimed at creating community-owned energy projects all over Europe where they own and are actively involved in running an energy resource. As a result of this project, the Community Power Coalition was founded in 2016. Today, the coalition is still working for a socially fair energy transformation putting people and communities in the center of it.
WISE Power project worked on improving local support for wind turbines, and local community participation in the planning of wind energy projects.
In this project, we support members in 7 EU Member States (France, Portugal, Greece, Poland, Italy, Belgium and The Netherlands) with the transposition of the Clean Energy Package, particularly when it comes to implementing good definitions for energy communities and providing enabling frameworks.
