HERCULES-CE

Project overview

Enhancing the energy transition in Central Europe with the support of renewable energy communities

Central Europe is phasing out fossil fuels but related costs remain high. Extensive investments in renewables and energy efficiency are needed. Renewable energy communities (REC) can help with that. They enable collective and citizen-driven actions, such as the production and sharing of renewable energy. The HERCULES-CE project promotes the introduction of these communities strategically and in local pilot actions. The partners test innovative data-driven approaches to evaluate the business models of new and existing communities. The partners also monitor and evaluate the communities’ environmental impacts and their potentials for reducing energy poverty.
