How to build an energy community

Our challenge is a starting point for thinking, imagining and creating GECO, the Green Energy COmmunity that will take place in the Pilastro – Roveri districts of Bologna. 

The project intends to make the local energy system more efficient and resilient, focusing on the figure of prosumers, citizens and companies who will play an active role in the process of production, distribution and consumption of energy.

In line with the 2030 Agenda, the Paris Agreement and the Clean Energy Package, that recognizes and offers an enabling legislative framework for citizen and renewable energy communities, GECO’s goal is to encourage and optimize generation and self-consumption of renewable energy in neighborhoods to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2022 and beyond. The project is therefore aimed at helping to achieve the decarbonization targets, increasing the use of renewable energy and developing the local economy, of which the spread of energy communities is one of the tools.

GECO is carried out by AESS, ENEA, UNIBO, with support of CAAB/FICO, Agenzia di Sviluppo Pilastro, Emilia Romagna Region, GSE, RSE, City of Bologna, local associations, businesses and citizens and with the co-fund of EIT Climate-KIC.

The three challenges 

The energy transition requires cultural changes, both material and immaterial, based on energy saving, consumption efficiency and cultural changes related to consumption habits. The proposed challenges help us to consider the process of creating an energy community on a local and global scale:

  1. How to start an energy community from your condominium?
  2. How to transform daily habits and behaviors so as to save energy?
  3. How to teach kids about energy?
