Using cooperatives for local energy system transformation
Cooperatives contribute to increasing public acceptance of renewable energies through the participation of citizens in the energy systems (REScoops) or in the financing of the systems (FINcoops). This will foster the further expansion of wind and solar energy and promotes the transformation of the energy market from a centralised to a decentralised market. Learn more about REScoops and FINcoops in the current RegEnergy newsletter, in which both models are presented and illustrated with meaningful examples.
In the Interreg project Renewable Energy Regions (RegEnergy), project partners from seven European countries are establishing viable new urban-rural partnerships under the project management of Climate Alliance to chance existing structures and to increase the use of renewable energy in the involved regions.
