REScoop PLUS Final Conference

Energy Efficiency in Building and in Cooperatives

· Future Event

Our REScoop PLUS project is coming to an end in February 2019. Therefore it is time to look back at our work and to deliver you our conclusions.

The Final Conference on Energy Efficiency will take place 15th of February 2019 in Utrecht, at the Zaalverhuur 7, hosted by ODE Decentraal.

Boothstraat 7 Utrecht, Netherlands

The conference is all about the important role that energy communities have when it comes to energy efficiency. During the conference we will present the results of our project: learn all about the European best practices on energy savings at several workshops and learn how you can apply them your selves with your energy cooperative.

In addition, we present the results of the research of University of Twente and University of Crete on how effective cooperatives actually are when it comes to energy efficiency. We can already tell you that we were surprised about the results ourselves!

Furthermore, during a debate, we would like to hear how you see the role of energy cooperatives and how we can strengthen their involvement in energy efficiency on a national or even European level.

Finally, the afternoon will be dedicated to workshops around the tools included in the REScoop PLUS toolkit.
