Energy communities are community-driven energy initiatives that contribute to a decentralised, flexible and sustainable energy system. Many local authorities aim to assist the citizen-led energy projects in development and operation, but struggle to provide structured and accessible support mechanisms. So-called ‘Technical Assistance Offices’ (TAO) are instruments that are popping up in several European towns and cities with this specific objective. Here, energy communities in all phases of development can receive professional support and access to a like-minded community. The LIFE-BECKON project focuses on the set-up of TAOs and experiments with different set-ups in its three pilot sites in Bulgaria, Denmark and Spain.

This lunchtime event will demonstrate how the LIFE-BECKON project contributes to empowering local authorities in supporting local energy initiatives and communities. It displays how the concept of a TAO comes to life in Copenhagen and what the project-own One-Stop-Shop (OSS) offers to municipalities willing to boost energy communities.

LIFE-BECKON is currently running an open call to promote energy communities. The goal is to enable local authorities to set up TAOs and to familiarise them with the concept of energy communities, empower them to create spaces for such citizen-centred energy projects and support them.
