Welcome to issue 2 of the Rural Energy Community Advisory Hub newsletter.
The RECAH team has had a busy few months since our last newsletter, marked by the launch of our Technical Assistance programme in Poland, the construction of two best practice case studies and the publication of two guidance documents for rural energy communities, with a third on the way.
We’re also seeing a huge amount of support, interest and engagement with the RECAH project, and are delighted to start seeing responses to our first two calls for applications for technical assistance support and for experts to provide that technical assistance.
Rural energy communities are more important than ever, especially given the announcement of the REPowerEU Plan to provide affordable, secure and sustainable energy for Europe. Rural areas hold great potential due to the space available to develop renewable energy projects and rural energy communities provide an opportunity to drive not only social but also technological innovation.
Please continue to engage with us as we strive to accelerate the development of rural energy communities across Europe and do not hesitate to get in touch regarding any of the content of this newsletter.
We would like to kindly ask you to forward this newsletter to any stakeholders that might be interested in:
- applying for technical assistance support
- providing their expertise to the technical assistance programme
- accessing our guidance documents and best practice case studies
- staying up to date with the initiative
- sharing details of the initiative with their network
They can sign up to receive our future newsletters here.
