How can we use the engagement power of energy communities to increase the energy efficiency of buildings and put citizens in the driver’s seat of the energy transition? By helping them to set up renovation support for their members and the wider community, empowering them for Citizen-led renovation!

The support service for Citizen-led renovation is an EU initiative aiming to empower energy communities to put citizens in the driver’s seat for energy-saving renovation projects. Our support service for four selected pilots in Ireland, Portugal, Belgium and Bulgaria will strengthen community building and assist in replicating programmes for energy renovations of buildings, including insulation, new technical systems and installing renewables. It is also our goal to help the four pilot projects to overcome financial, legal, technical and informational barriers and deliver future-proof residential buildings.
