REScoop.eu coordinates the collaboration between members in different thematic working groups. The aim of the working groups is to provide our members direct access to experts on one hand and to built a forum for exchange among participants on the other hand. Please contact the working group coordinator if you are interested in joining one of the working groups.
Working group participation is reserved to REScoop.eu members.
Demand Response working group
Exchanging knowledge about innovative demand response tools and novel business models for energy cooperatives
Within the frame of the FLEXCoop project, REScoop.eu has set up a working group to explore and exchange on the Demand Response topic. This working group is constituted of interested REScoop.eu members and will serve as an interlocutor for the project consortium and provide direct access to the project experts and be a forum for exchange among participants.

Advocacy working group
Representing the voice of citizens and renewable energy cooperatives to European policy makers
Members of REScoop.eu are invited to participate in an advocacy task force. This working group gathers on a regular basis to discuss relevant policy issues. Through the advocacy task force, white papers, public consultations and high level reports are shared. Members get updated on what is going on at the EU level. Together we build upon positions and elaborate a strategy.

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. Presently, however, we face the challenge of rolling out this technology efficiently in our local communities. We believe 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 intensively together on electric car sharing. As a result a new European co-operative Society called "The Mobility Factory SCE" is now being founded, giving REScoops the opportunity to become co-owner of a shared IT platform for carsharing.
