    E-mobility working group

    Co-operative network for sustainable energy

    In the future, electric cars will play a large role in our local electricity grids (so called smart grids) . Presently, however, we face the challenge of rolling out this technology efficiently in our local communities. We believe that by setting up European collaboration around this topic we can find an answer to this challenge that also provides opportunities to all REScoops.

    The Mobility Working Group of REScoop.eu works to facilitate electric car sharing. A new European co-operative Society called "The Mobility Factory SCE" has been founded, giving REScoops the opportunity to become co-owner of a shared IT platform for e-car sharing.

    Citizen-led renovation working group

    Co-operative network for sustainable energy

    In this working group, REScoops work on the concept of citizen-led energy renovations and a roadmap on how to further roll it out. Citizen led renovation brings citizens together to conduct energy renovation projects in single and multi-tenant buildings.

    The goal of this working group is to collect barriers, financing schemes, experiences and best practices related to deep renovation of homes and public buildings.
