The role of citizens, businesses and all types of energy consumers will change in short future. Today, all EU-members are implementing Local Energy Communities (LEC's), defined as "an association, a cooperative, a partnership, a non-profit organization or other legal entity which is effectively controlled by local shareholders or members, generally value rather than profit-driven, involved in distributed generation and in performing activities of a distribution system operator, supplier or aggregator at local level, including across borders".
The overall objective of the LECSEA-project is a succesful take-off of Energy Communities (EC's) in the 2-Seas region. This will lead to unlocking extra potential of mid-scale sustainable energy.
