Objective

The achievement of the EU climate targets for 2030 will be facilitated by the widespread adoption of renewable energy. Hosting capacity can be reached through the market uptake of citizen energy communities (CEC).

The EU-funded LIGHTNESS project will increase the renewable energy capacity through social engagement, a regulatory roadmap, a low-cost technological package and innovative business models. The project aims to reduce final energy consumption and CO2 emissions with the implementation of ambitious end users’ engagement plans that will directly involve more than 500 households and more than 30 tertiary buildings.

The LIGHTNESS solution will establish digital twins for the integrated assessment of CEC case studies in five EU countries. Case studies consist of an energy cooperative (ES), a social housing building (PL), a private multi-apartment building (IT), a business park (FR) and 2 CECs to uphold the interaction among them (NL). The different regulatory and policy frameworks will allow exchange best practices and provide road maps for the authorities.
