Energize Co2mmunity – Real-life implementation of renewable community energy projects

Energize Co2mmunity project launches real-life pilot projects of renewable community energy in the Baltic Sea region. Citizens facilitate, implement and co-finance renewable energy projects from different local sources (e.g. solar, wind, biomass, geothermal). Such community energy projects are more easily accepted by society than commercial solar or wind parks and thus foster the transition towards renewable energy production. Communities from two regions pair up to learn from and to support each other. Energize CO2mmunity builds on the project Co2mmunity. More info, visit here
