SMR Consultants in collaboration with the Municipality of Alimos has undertaken the creation of a business plan regarding the operation of an Energy Community. This specific legislation was enacted in 2018 and it is about the creation of partnerships between the citizens and local institutions as well as the enhancement of social acceptance of Renewable Energy Sources and community participation in a wide range of energy activities. This legislation introduces the energy democracy in Greece, giving their citizens, local institutions and small-medium enterprises the opportunity to produce their own clean energy from renewable energy sources and in this way they contribute to country’s energy transition.

There are various ways to create an energy community. The rifest method in Europe is that of net-metering through the installation of photovoltaic systems and wind turbines. An energy community will produce many benefits. More specifically, greenhouse gas emissions will decrease and this will contribute to protection of the environment.  With the usage of renewable energy sources there will be a reduction in energy production cost, many job positions will be created, incomes will increase, local economy will be enhanced and, finally, local businesses will become more competitive.
