Interreg Europe have confirmed the publication of the good practice Community Power – a community-based Virtual Power Plant (cVPP) in the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform good practice database.
We at Community Power are delighted to get recognition for the work we are doing in the good practice database. We appreciate the Southern Region Assembly choosing Community Power to be part of the FIRESPOL good practice submission
This is one of four FIRESPOL Good Practices submitted by the Southern Region Assembly and published on the FIRESPOL project website. It is the first project to have been published in the main Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform following a review by a thematic expert.
Policymakers around Europe are now able to consult our good practice online and contact us through the Policy Learning Platform for further exchange of experiences.
This is what one of the Platform experts had to say about the good practice:
“Community Power is an excellent approach for boosting the use of decentralised energy, bringing together many electricity generators into a single energy ‘supplier’ for selling and trading on the electricity market. Although several examples of VPP exist, the community aspect of this is novel, enabling even small generators to sell as part of a larger whole. Many regions are looking at present to boost decentralised energy generation and community projects, and this is a very interesting practice which could be replicated in other markets, where a particular barrier for small generators remains access to the grid and electricity markets.”
