We are calling existing and prospective energy communities to apply for the free support service for Citizen-led renovation. If you are not an energy community, but are still interested in being involved, we have a dedicated support pathway for you. Second round of the Open call, deadline 17 June!

The support service for Citizen-led renovation (CLR) is an EU initiative aiming to empower existing and prospective 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 is underway to strengthen community building and assist in replicating programmes for energy renovations of buildings, including insulation, new technical systems and installing renewables. We are currently helping the four pilot projects to overcome financial, legal, technical and informational barriers and deliver future-proof residential buildings. As we enter CLR Phase II, we are expanding our support services to cater to Pilots, Learners and Followers with various levels of support, combining one-on-one sessions, webinars, workshops, peer-to-peer learning and events. Submit your application today!
