Are you planning to develop a renewable energy community?

Find out more in our webinar series 21 “Rebuilding Austria: sustainable, modern, fair”. There will be short contributions by experts as well as plenty of room for questions.

The foundations for energy communities adopted with the Renewable Energy Expansion Act package represent a milestone for domestic energy policy. For the first time, citizens are given the opportunity to join forces and proactively participate in the energy transition. What is completely new is that energy may now be produced, stored, sold and consumed flexibly and across property boundaries. This marks the beginning of a new chapter in the energy transition.

What can you expect in the webinar?

The webinar will cover the basics for energy communities. In addition to the possible models of energy communities and how they work, the legal background is presented. In addition, the webinar will address how communities can best participate in energy communities. In addition, the official coordination office for energy communities at the Climate and Energy Fund will introduce itself and give an overview of its services. To get an insight into practice, a regional showcase will be presented and the current EU project SHAREs will be introduced. Following the presentations, the speakers will be happy to answer your questions.
