What is the process for introducing community energy in a community?

o Formulating a vision and goals: the community must determine what its energy goals are.

o Creating a technical and financial study: it is necessary to consider the available technologies, the potential location of the equipment and to estimate the initial investment and operating costs.

o Securing funding: securing funding can include government grants, European funds, private investment or crowdfunding.

o Establishing the legal and organisational structure: establishing the legal framework and organisational structure of the project.

o Subsequent implementation and operation: construction of energy facilities and their subsequent operation.
