Energy Saving - Energy Sobriety - Energy Solidarity
In the REScoop community, we believe in a holistic vision of the energy system. We want to build a local, integrated and responsible energy base where we can live and control our energy simply and collectively. This is why Energy Efficiency is so crucial. Because a Kwh that is not consumed will be cleaner, greener and cheaper than a Kwh that is produced.
At REScoop.eu we believe that Energy Efficiency means energy savings, energy sobriety and energy solidarity. The goal is to achieve an equilibrium between consumption and renewable production. Energy efficiency also means encouraging responsible investments by members so that they can save money on their energy bills (kilowatt/hours), particularly those who are most vulnerable. We believe that cooperative engagement is a way to empower more energy efficient behavior, regardless of wealth.

Through various European Projects and with the participation of the members of the REScoop.eu federation, several tools where developed to help REScoops promote Energy Efficiency in their organisation and to help their members being more energy efficient.
Background information about the REScoop PLUS project
The REScoop PLUS project is developing a network and toolbox to support energy efficiency as a value-making activity for the REScoops. Our goal is to enact the Energy Efficiency First principle, by sharing the tools and techniques developed by REScoops for REScoops. In this section you will also find different publications about Energy Efficiency. REScoop.eu collaborates with several research institutes to compile an evidence based approach that results in recommendations for our members. Moreover, the content in this section targets national and European policy makers in order to inform and encourage them to recognise the impact and opportunity REScoops bring along to build a more energy efficient Europe.
News and events on Energy Efficiency
In this section you will find news about the REScoop Community and its road to Energy Efficiency. Here you can also find the list of upcoming events organised in the scope of the project.
In this section, you will find knowledge about energy solidarity developed by the consortium partners. Moreover, best practices of REScoops that are fighting energy poverty are shared.
