Our course “Fundamentals of Energy Co-operation” explains how community members or self-organized groups can become owners of energy infrastructure to stay energy efficient and independent.
The Energy Cooperative allows citizens to meet their needs (both individual and community requests) related to energy consumption. These are the most varied needs – from providing the community with the necessary resources (wholesale purchase of firewood or fuel) to the production of heat and power from alternative energy sources. The financial effort of a community or a self-organized group provides tangible benefits to all its members. This instrument has already been used by hundreds of millions of people around the world (primarily in the EU and the US).
The course is in Ukrainian. It is freely accessible and open to everyone.
