Community-owned energy projects have the potential to transform our energy system. Communities and cooperatives all over Europe are creating projects where they own and are actively involved in running an energy resource.

The Community Power (CO-POWER) project aims:

  • Speed up the development of renewable energy projects by creating a favourable legislative environment. 
  • Build a broad, public coalition across Europe supportive of community renewable projects.
  • Inform and educate policymakers, empowering them to put forward enabling legislative frameworks.
  • Inform and engage citizens.
  • Make recommendations to enable legislative change in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Spain, Hungary, Ireland, Scotland and Belgium and recommendations to support community energy projects in EU legislation.
  • Create opportunities for public-private finance of community renewables projects in Eastern European countries.
