Energy communities are one of the key elements for achieving the EU’s energy transition: By 2050, half of Europe’s citizens could be producing up to half of the EU’s renewable energy. This is why the European Commission is launching the Energy Communities Repository – an initiative that will support energy communities through technical assistance and training, provide policy analysis and insights for policy-makers, regulators and financial institutions, and more. All interested stakeholders from the energy sector – energy communities and beyond – are welcome to the official launch of the Energy Communities Repository next 20 April in Brussels.

In order to inspire future energy communities, a study visit to the energy community project will be organised in Leuven (Belgium) on the same day of the event launch, in collaboration with the EU Horizon2020 project SCCALE20-30-50. Places to the study visit are limited – if you would like to join it, please contact

The recording of this event is available at DG ENERGY's YouTube channel.
