Although a nascent business model, today energy cooperatives and energy communities cover already a wide range of activities in renewable energies and energy efficiency in several countries. These are local and citizen-led initiatives that put in common investment means and democratic principles to implement the energy transition. Decentralized renewables and small-scale energy efficiency can quickly materialise and become a solution to energy security and decarbonisation, and benefit from citizen economic participation. This webinar focuses on case studies from different countries paving the way for adopting this business model in local communities worldwide.
