In a time where climate change poses an ever-increasing challenge and the resources of our planet are becoming scarcer, it is time to find sustainable solutions that allow us to have a livable future. A promising idea that has gained importance in recent years is the energy community.
What is an energy community?
An energy community is a group of people who come together to generate, distribute, and utilize renewable energy. In contrast to the conventional model of energy supply where large energy corporations are the main players, energy communities rely on decentralized energy generation and citizen participation. The members of an energy community can, for example, collectively operate solar installations, wind farms, or biomass plants and distribute the generated electricity among themselves.
