About the project:

The energy community movement is spreading across Europe. However, central and eastern
Europe face specific challenges in the structuring of the civil society initiatives.
Life COMET supports the creation of community energy coalitions at national level in
Eastern European countries. Partners will also help the emergence of new energy
communities with training and technical assistance.


Life COMET will:

  • Form community energy coalitions by identifying, engaging and empowering relevant national CE stakeholders
  • Explore local specificities to create a better understanding for CE-related engagement and then create favorable framework
  • conditions and improved market conditions through coalitions’ advocacy, development of tools, methodologies and technical
  • support for catalyzing new CE initiatives
  • Build on top of and complement the existing networks, platforms and projects with an innovative and comprehensive approach to
  • tackling the specificities of CE hurdles in Eastern EU
  • Replicate and disseminate the developed tools, methodologies, experiences and business models, thus scaling up the impact and
  • further increasing the number of CE initiatives in this region.
  • The project partners have a high understanding of the intricate and underlying barriers and obstacles which are hindering the rollout
  • of citizen engagement in community RES projects in this part of the EU. It is built up of cooperatives, NGOs and academic partners,
  • thus covering a wide set of expertise necessary for successful implementation of project’s activities and its significant impacts.
