About the LECSea-project

New legislation has given citizens, companies and organisations the power to form their own ‘energy communities’ to collectively generate, store and share energy locally. This will help to speed up decarbonisation, put communities in control of energy production and give them a share in the profits from generation and supply.

The LECSea project will demonstrate how this can be done by:

  • Piloting eight energy communities across Belgium, Netherlands, France and the UK
  • Developing knowledge and resources that can be used by groups across Europe wishing to create their own energy communities
