Project: Concepts, Planning, Demonstration and Replication of Local User-friendly Energy Communities

Acronym CLUE (Reference Number: 91772)
Duration 01/07/2019 - 30/06/2022
Project Topic CLUE will acquire knowledge on optimized design, planning and operation of Local Energy Communities (LECs) and will develop a tool kit for planning and operation as key elements for successful replication and upscaling of LECs. Research and development will be executed on technologies with the focus on flexibilities and sector coupling for LEC energy systems, on services by developing business models and recommendations on improved regulatory framework and on stakeholder involvement by partnering with developers and service providers and integrating consumer, prosumer, and organizer of LECs in a living-lab concept. CLUE is executed by leading European research institutes, industry, and local partners, working together in five demo sites in four countries. By implementing and testing different technological and market solutions and executing a cross-country analysis, CLUE is able to develop optimized LEC solutions in dependency on country and site-specific framework conditions.
