REScoop.eu welcomes three new members
REScoop.eu is delighted to welcome three new members to her network. We strongly believe that by growing our network, we make sure the voices of citizens and their communities are better heard in the energy sector. Below you can find an overview of our new members.
TrydaNi Charge Place Wales
TrydaNi Charge Place Wales is an electric vehicle charging cooperative that aims to establish a Wales-wide network of charging points supplied by community-owned renewable energy where possible. Their plan is to install over 500 charging sockets in Wales by 2030.
TrydaNi was founded by a core group of community energy and sustainable development organisations that wanted to be part of the change to electric mobility. Wales' charging network now lags well behind the rest of the UK, so TrydaNi members decided to take matters into their own hands and start developing the network by themselves.
Moreover, TrydaNi is working on the creation of community electric car clubs to develop an affordable and accessible e-carsharing network across Wales. The clubs will allow members to have access to electric vehicles when needed, providing an opportunity to drive a car without the responsibility and financial burden of owning one. Their objective is to have 100 community vehicles by 2025.
Community Energy London
Community Energy London is a non-profit organisation that connects community energy groups across London to share experiences, resources and learning, as well as to inspire new groups and lobby the government to favour community energy. Moreover, they produce resources and tools, such as maps, reports, or guides, to support the activities of these community energy groups.
Community Energy London's network is composed of 127 projects, 70 of which are involved in solar production, reaching a total production capacity of 2.83 MW. The network also includes community groups such as community centres, places of worship, academic institutions, or heritage groups whose primary purpose is not linked to the energy transition but are increasingly interested in addressing the climate crisis and keen to install solar panels or provide energy advice.

Energy Community Iliotropio Lesvos
Energy Community Iliotropio Lesvos was established at the end of last year in Lesvos, Greece, by six citizens and two social and solidarity economy enterprises. The community aims to produce energy for its members and vulnerable households of the local community. Soon they will launch a new call to attract new members to their project.
