COMPILE toolkit: Stakeholder Engagement Guide
The COMPILE Stakeholder Engagement Guide provides ideas on how to start and structure an energy community, i.e. a group of citizens who want to develop activities in favour of a decentralised and democratic energy transition. It specifically focuses on the tools and techniques related to structuring the core group of an energy community project and raising support in the local community.
The Stakeholder Engagement Guide targets project leaders and citizens looking to build an energy community. It takes the standpoint of a community leader or organiser and assumes that you are at the very start of the project in your community. The Stakeholder Engagement Guide helps you engage with people that all share the same ambition to set-up and run an energy community project.
The goal of this part of the COMPILE toolkit is to guide you to a path rather than to provide a single answer to the question: how to start an Energy Community.
COMPILE is a H2020 project looking to build citizen and renewable energy communities in closed or poorly connected systems. The goal of our project is to provide solutions for communities to grow and structure to transform the European energy system. COMPILE has produced this toolkit to support European citizens to create energy communities.
