A technical assistance programme to boost energy communities’ activities across Europe

The EU's Energy Communities Repository has opened a call for technical assistance. Any energy community project, regardless of their development stage, can apply!

Energy communities find themselves at very different stages of development. Some are informal groups that have just started thinking about setting up an energy community, some are already established legal entities that only need a last bit of expert support to get their renewable energy project over the finish line.

Four technical assistance activities to match energy communities’ needs

With this in mind, the Energy Communities Repository has built up a technical assistance programme made of different forms of support to take into account the different needs of applicants.

Direct technical assistance

At least 25 energy communities will benefit from direct technical support from experts in the field.

Capacity building at national level

Workshops and webinars will be held in local language in the following countries: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia (extension towards Serbia, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina), Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, targeting at least 80 communities.

Twinnings and peer-to-peer exchanges

On specific topics and issues faced by energy communities. Successful applicants will be matched with experienced energy communities and/or national experts based on the applicants’ needs and wherever possible, by language. The twinnings will be organised in 3 online sessions.

Capacity building at EU level

These activities will be complemented by EU-wide capacity-building webinars.
