Operate a platform for data on Energy Communities and provide technical assistance to support the establishment of Energy Communities.
The project aims to establish and operate an advisory and information hub that monitors the legal, regulatory and policy framework for Energy Communities and collects data on the development of Energy Communities in the European Union. It will also provide guidance on the establishment of Energy Communities and share best practices from across Europe.

- FEDARENE is a European network of regional and local organizations focused on energy and environmental policy.
