For a fair and people-powered energy system, BECoop (2020-2023), a project funded by the European Horizon 2020 programme, aims at putting communities in charge of their local renewable (bio)energy generation.

The ambition of BECoop is to provide the necessary conditions, technical as well as business support tools, for unlocking the underlying market potential of community bioenergy, fostering new links and partnerships. BECoop partners will develop a set of tools to facilitate the provision of support services to bioenergy communities and foster a broad deployment of bioenergy heating technologies across Europe. Finally, BECoop tests the implementation of community bioenergy heating support scheme in 4 complementary pilot cases before transferring to additional cases across the EU, in Greece, Poland, Spain and Italy.
