SCCALE partners RESCoop.eu & Energy Cities have just published a Community Energy Communications Guide to support citizen groups and local governments to kick off communication and engagement activities for the development of local community energy projects. It will inspire them with numerous examples of cities and cooperatives that went before them and succeeded!
Today, many people still don’t know what community energy is and the benefits it can offer in collectively addressing climate and social challenges. Spreading the word about community energy is thus an important aspect of leading the transition to energy democracy.
In this short Communication Guide, Energy Cities & RESCoop.eu attempt to answer the most common questions received from citizen groups and local governments that wish to:
- gain support for the launch of their community energy project;
- motivate their residents, neighbours and stakeholders to take part in their project
