LIFE-BECKON Lunch webinar. Setting up Technical Assistance Offices for Energy Communities in your area - The LIFE-BECKON call for replication
Energy communities are community-driven energy initiatives that contribute to a decentralised, flexible and sustainable energy system. Many public authorities aim to assist the citizen-led energy projects in development and operation, but struggle to provide structured and accessible support mechanisms. So-called ‘Technical Assistance Offices’ (TAO) are instruments that are popping up in several European municipalities and cities with this specific objective. Here, energy communities in all phases of development can receive professional support and access to a like-minded community. The LIFE-BECKON project focuses on the set-up of TAOs and experiments with different set-ups in its three pilot sites in Bulgaria, Denmark and Spain.
