About REScoop MECISE

REScoop MECISE stands for Renewable Energy Cooperatives Mobilizing European Citizens to Invest in Sustainable Energy and refers to a Horizon 2020 project in which six fairly large energy co-ops link renewable energy projects to energy efficiency and foster collaborations with cities and municipalities. 

The main ambitions of REScoop MECISE are:

  • to develop an investment portfolio leading to over 110 million euros investments in renewable energy projects (wind, photovoltaics, biomass, hydro) and energy efficiency. 
  • to reach out to local municipalities and help them implement their sustainable energy action plans by taking energy effiency measures in public buildings.
  • to facilitate energy effiency investments in the homes of citizens who are members of local energy cooperatives.
  • to establish a dedicated financing tool to help local energy cooperatives finance RES and EE projects.
