• Tools to help REScoops to promote Energy Efficiency


  • The Toolbox

    The REScoop PLUS project has produced a toolbox of best practices that were implemented in REScoops around Europe. You will find here the collection of those best practices. Our team will help you implement them in your cooperative to make it more energy efficient.

    Energie ID

    Energie ID is a plateform for the active customers of Ecopower (BEL). Customer fill in their own data on the easy to use plateform on a monthly basis. This data is used by Energie ID to create a future profil of their consumption and the compare them to similar households. The plateform is also giving access for customers to groups where they can get support to be more energy efficient by an energy expert from Ecopower.

    The Package Deal

    EBO Consult manages administrative and technical tasks of several local district heating non profit companies. One of the administrative and technical tasks of EBO Consult is the expansion of disctrict heating area. In order to realize a project, 30% of the heat demand has to be converted to district heating. A packaged deal is proposed to all the area with the same price.

    Single Tariff System

    Members of Ecopower get a yearly invoice of the cooperative. The tariffs are set every year by the cooperative depending on taxes, transportation costs and energy prices. In terms of communication, understanding and explanation of their energy bills and rational energy use many cooperative members enjoy the simple and clear invoice.

    Dr Watt

    Dr Watt is an online tool including an in-person training course to help consumers make a self diagnosis of their energy consumption. The service is offered by Enercoop to all consumers both members and non-members. The report produced by the tool allows you to have a specific look at each of the applicance making it very effective.

    Technical Support

    The FJR-ordning is a check of the consumers heating installations every second year. The first check is a check of their district heating unit and an energy audit of the house. The second check is a maintenance check of the district heating unit in order to adjust and be more energy efficient.

    Return Flow Temperature Optimization

    In order to optimize their district heating, and therefore save energy, SEV uses the measure of return flow temperature optimization. This is a tariff incentive for consummers to use energy outside peak consumption.

    Info Energia

    Som Energia started with InforEnergia as an extra service for their members. Instead of just sending invoices, Som Energia also sends reports on the energy use of their customers. In this report customers are compared with similar housshold benchmarcks and with previous periods. They also get personnalized energy saving tips.
