The Lightness project aims to empower citizens to generate, share and sell renewable energy and thereby contribute to making the European energy sector more sustainable and democratic.
Citizen Energy Communities are defined by the European Commission as legal entities, made of citizen associations, cooperatives, local authorities and enterprises, that team up to participate in the electricity system. These communities make it easier for their members to play an active role in the energy transition and enjoy economic, social, and environmental benefits.
We align with the strong belief that the future EU electricity system is a distributed and open-market one. CECs will play a main role in engaging citizens to unlock their full potential in their communities’ energy solutions. CECs will ensure energy security and expand the use of Renewable Energy Sources (RES).
