Motivation & Impact
A socially fair energy transformation is within reach of citizens through the availability of the right digital tools. The EU-funded LocalRES project will deploy innovative local energy systems to put renewable energy into the hands of communities and people. The project will boost structural changes in the current energy system at different levels: generation, market, distribution and consumers. To this aim, the project will develop a planning tool to enable citizen participation in the renewable energy communities’ planning and decision-making processes, and a Multi-Energy Virtual Power Plant (MEVPP) approach for optimising in real-time different energy vectors (electricity, heating, mobility) and different energy and flexibility services.
