Could energy communities trigger a rural revival?

In this new episode of our SCCALE 20-30-50 podcast series, we talked with Italian energy expert and startup funder Carlo Tacconelli.  

“Energy communities can help EU to shift from a linear to a circular mindset” said Carlo, who underlined the incredible benefits such projects brings to the places they are located in. It’s not just about the energy produced, but also the potential for everyone to understand where is the energy coming from. Education and capacity building are key in this domain. In its interview, Carlo also underlines the role (italian) energy communities could have in repopulating rural areas thanks to the new job opportunities they generate.
