Inspiring story in Greece


Lamia in central Greece is home to the community energy project AgroEnergy. This co-operative organization is run by shareholders who both produce and consume the energy they create from local biomass. The project also tackles climate change and energy poverty, and creates jobs for local people.

The shareholders make the best use of the high biomass potential of the region by only using local biomass that could not otherwise be used in a more sustainable way. For example, farmers’ buildings are heated during the winter thanks to fuel pellets made by a collectively-owned pelletiser.

There has never been a better time to start a community power project in Greece.
