LocalRES project will deploy innovative local energy systems driven by renewable energy communities for a fair energy transformation that puts renewable energy into the hands of communities and people.
LocalRES will deliver new digital tools that will boost the expected structural change in the current energy system at different levels:
- Generation – increasing the number of small power producers of renewable energy;
- Market – creating local energy markets that enable prosumers to trade energy volumes of their choosing within local communities
- Distribution – establishing a multidirectional energy flow and promoting REC driven energy services
- Consumers – empowering consumers to be active and participating in the energy system and the design of their own Renewable Energy Communities.
The focus is on the renewable energy communities as main actors for leading the structural change towards the decarbonisation of local energy systems.
Energy Cities’ role
Energy Cities is involved in the replication and policy activities, and coordinates the communication and dissemination of the project.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under the Grant Agreement no. 957819.
