How can we produce, distribute and share energy in a fair, but financially viable way? What business schemes around clean energy can best serve the needs of people in energy poverty? The POWER UP project has identified suitable models that have the potential to build wealth and benefits for the poorest:
- Energy Communities
- Energy Cooperatives
- ESCo Model
- Technology leasing
Each model is summed up in a profile card with its strengths and weaknesses.
The POWER UP pilots will explore each of these five options and, from there on, develop their very place-specific long-term business model.
This document is the project’s deliverable D2.2 Report on knowledge transfer activities on energy business models.
