The online kick-off meeting of the project “Energy Communities for Energy Poverty” was hosted by ERFC, on 02/04/2020. EnerCom-EnerPov project is implemented within the Earlier Stage Innovation Pathfinder, under the funding of EIT Climate-KIC. All the partners and a delegation of EIT Climate-KIC were present:
European Regional Framework for Co-operation (GR)
CleanTech Bulgaria (BG)
Cyprus University of Technology (CY)
EnerCom-EnerPov aims at developing a virtual-net metering community energy business model. The main focus will be on tackling urban energy poverty, delivering strong social impact and strengthening social cohesion in urban and rural areas.
As this is the first time that such a model will be developed in Europe, a virtual-net metering community energy startup scheme (already under development) will serve as testbed in order to conduct a feasibility study based on existing and reliable data.
