REScoop MECISE is a European project that aims to mobilise citizens and municipalities in the transition to a more sustainable and decentralised energy system. With support from the EASME, a consortium of established energy cooperatives develops projects for renewable energy and energy efficiency. In addition, they seek opportunities to set-up a financial facilitation service for all European energy cooperatives.

Energy Efficiency

REScoop MECISE aims to save energy in private homes and public buildings. With support from the Executive Agency for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (EASME) of the EU Commission we developed services that support citizens and municipalities to save vast amounts of energy.

Renewable Energy

Wind, solar, hydro, biomass, geothermal... renewable energy sources will be key if we really want to change our energy system. Through REScoop MECISE six energy cooperatives develop new RES projects. Their investment portfolio ranges up to 110 Million euro.

Financial Services is working on a financial facilitation service that will foster an international collaboration between energy co-ops and at the same time allow them to scale-up the size of individual investments.

energy democracy

The energy market is changing. We are shifting from a centralised energy system that is based on fossil fuels and nuclear power towards a decentralised model that is heavily relying on renewable energy sources like solar or wind. This energy transition is characterised by a shift from large utilities to prosumers, citizens who produce and consume their own  energy either individually or collectively. By 2050 half of the European citizens could be producing their own energy from renewable sources. As a federation of energy cooperatives we want to unleash that potential. We empower citizens and cooperatives and support an energy transition that leads to energy democracy!
