Accelerating the adoption of new Local Energy Communities across Europe through the creation of an advanced governance toolkit. The project started on 1 June 2022 and runs until 28 February 2025.
Create a distributed governance toolkit for local energy communities (LECs) that will advance the green energy transition, support community sustainability and coherence.
Exploit advanced digital technology for autonomous energy resource integration within and across LECs.
GENTE aims to create actionable, tangible and applicable outcomes for communities and energy managers with the goal to make the creation and operation of LECs as simple and achieveable as possible. The outcomes will take the following forms while insuring reproducibility, replicability and interoperability:
Methodologies & knowledge
Creating energy communities and community federations
Guidelines for tool adoption
Decision support tools for setting up
Guidelines and incentive schemes for community managers
Data analytics (forecasting, local optimisation)
