Our Pilot Energy Communities

The first step of SCCALE 20-30-50 is dedicated to setting up pilot energy communities in five European countries: France, Belgium, Netherlands, Croatia and Greece. Together, these pilots represent a diverse range of community projects, going from renewable energies production to district heating, building renovation and behavioral change.
