Developing Energy Communities through Informative anD collEctive actions
DECIDE is a Horizon 2020 project that aims to gain a better understanding of how energy communities and energy efficiency services are established and managed. It also intends to identify which kind of communications and interactions work best to encourage participation in energy communities for specific types of individuals and groups, and to test and transfer knowledge in pilot projects across Europe.
DISCOVER THE PILOTS
The project pilot sites provide a set of complementary and geographically well-spread cases covering social housing as well as middle class and upper-class neighbourhoods in Austria, Belgium, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece and the Netherlands. They will deliver the necessary cases for a sound outreach built on an extensive social science basis.
