COME RES
COME RES

COME RES is a Horizon2020 project that aims to increase the share of renewable energy in the electricity sector. To do so, the project focusses on advancing renewable energy communities in nine European countries (Belgium, Germany, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal and Spain) learning from regions with advanced community energy development and supporting target regions with the potential to further develop energy communities.

ROLECS
ROLECS

ROLECS is a research project that intends to gain a deeper understanding of the development and role of Local Energy Communities (LECS) in Belgium & in Europe. The project aims at providing answers to questions relative to, amongst others, triggering end-consumers participation to LECs, integrating technical energy models to social behaviors, defining the impact of large scalle roll-out of LECs regarding the decarbonization of the energy system, etc.

MUSE GRIDS
MUSE GRIDS

MUSE GRIDS is a project that aims to demonstrate, in two weakly connected areas (a town on a top of a hill and a rural neighbourhood), a set of both technological and non-technological solutions targeting the interaction of local energy grids (electricity grids, district heating and cooling networks, water networks, gas grids, electromobility etc.) to enable maximization of local energy independency through optimized management of the production via end user-driven control strategies, smart grid functionality, storage, CHP and RES integration.

INTERCONNECT
INTERCONNECT

This project proposes effective energy management using a resilient and practical ecosystem that is user-centric and market-driven. The project involves a range of specialised stakeholders, including advanced technology actors, manufacturers, providers and energy users. Via seven pilots, they will showcase an effective digital market for ensuring energy-efficiency at reduced costs that is beneficial to end-users.

RENENERGETIC
RENENERGETIC

RENERGETIC demonstrates that urban energy islands increase the share of renewables in local areas and the energy efficiency of the local energy systems. It integrates electricity, heat and waste vectors in three energy islands: New Docks in Ghent, Warta Campus in Poznan and San Raffaele Hospital and Research campus in Segrate-Milan. Beyond RENergetic, the impact of urban energy islands is ensured by considering technical, socio-economic and legal viability, while safe-guarding economic viability.

PROSEU
PROSEU

PROSEU was a European project working on the mainstreaming of the Renewable Energy(RE) prosumer phenomenon into the European Energy Union. Prosumers are active energy users who both produce and consume energy from renewable sources.

COMPILE
COMPILE

COMPILE's aim is to show the opportunities of remote areas or areas weakly connected to the grid, the so-called energy islands, for decarbonization of energy supply, community building and creating environmental and socioeconomic benefits. These opportunities are being demonstrated at 5 pilot sites with the help of 6 COMPILE tools.
