Three guidance documents developed by RECAH are now available in French, Hungarian, and Romanian.
The comprehensive documents target those wishing to set up and run a rural energy community and cover a variety of subjects, including the environmental, economic, and social benefits of energy communities; how to create value and engage citizens in the energy transition; and how to obtain and manage finances for a rural energy community.
This advice has been garnered through extensive research and networking with energy communities that already exist throughout European rural areas, and which can offer examples of successful best practices and business models for communities to emulate.
Annie Cousins, Communications Consultant for the RECAH initiative, said: ‘We are delighted to offer translations of these important guidance documents to ensure that the research and recommendations of the RECAH initiative are accessible to as many people as possible. If we hope to accelerate the energy transition, implement widespread sustainable energy solutions and reduce dependence on foreign energy, cross-border knowledge sharing will be crucial.’
