Local4Local: organizing energy sharing in energy communities
Local4local means organizing your own energy supply together with your energy community according to your own rules at a price that you (together) also control. This is where we want to go as quickly as possible as a cooperative movement in the energy transition. We are working on this concept with a consortium of thirteen partners.
Presented by Siward Zomer, director of the Dutch branche organization of sustainable energy communities 'Energie Samen' and boardmember Rescoop.eu.
