Repowering Europe by empowering energy communities: a perspective on digital and social innovation
Energy communities can contribute to a just energy transition by empowering citizens to take ownership of energy project implementation, operation and allocation of benefits. The session will highlight how local renewable energy ownership can contribute to the EU’s access to affordable energy, and identify existing means and gaps for digital tools that can help energy communities deliver system and community benefits.
