Delivering a more efficient energy system through energy communities - The REScoop PLUS toolkit - BEHAVE 2018
09:00 - 12:00
Members are reducing their energy consumption upon joininga REScoop. This was conclusion was reached by severalEuropean REScoops (Renewable Energy Cooperatives), alsoknown as ‘energy communities’. The REScoop PLUS Projectverified this assumption, and aimed to better understand why participating in a REScoop fosters this behavioral change.
The project identifies and measures best practices, improve activities to engage citizens in energy efficiency actions. We will present the scientific evidence to support the role of energy communities to encourage efficient behavior change. Finally, we will bring together energy efficiency experts from the REScoops to explain the tools they put in place.
