Who we are
REScoop.eu is the European federation of citizen energy cooperatives. We are a growing network of 1.900 European energy cooperatives and their 1.250.000 citizens.
Through REScoop.eu, we wish to make our voices heard in the European energy debate. Citizens after all are the ones who will be paying for the transition to a more sustainable energy system. REScoop.eu empowers them and wants to achieve energy democracy.
What we do
Through REScoop.eu, energy cooperatives wish to make their voices heard in the European energy debate. After all, their members – ordinary people - are the ones who will be paying for the transition to a more sustainable energy system. REScoop.eu empowers citizens and energy cooperatives and wants to achieve energy democracy.
The federation has four well-defined objectives:
- We represent the voice of citizens and energy cooperatives to European policy makers
- We support starting and established energy cooperatives and provide them with tools and contacts to help them grow and prosper
- We facilitate international exchanges and cooperation between energy cooperatives
- We promote the cooperative business model in the energy sector
