Friends of the Earth Europe, Energy Cities and REScoop.eu – with the support of the Community Power coalition – put together a guide to help people navigate all stages of setting up and running an energy community. From information tools on how to put your group together, which legal form to adopt, what kind of project or technology could be the right one for you – this book is full of practical tips.
Bringing lots of inspiring examples from across Europe, this guidebook shows that people that want to build community energy projects are not on their own. This guide is a call to action. It’s a call to get active locally, and become part of a growing movement of people who are reclaiming power. It will connect you and your community to a history of decades of local action on energy.
