The LECo-project shall respond on the needs of remote communes and settlements for a sustainable energy supply. For this purpose, an approach shall be developed to use as far as possible existing renewable resources for the energy supply improving building stock standards by combining new technologies with locally available natural resources. In order to create synergetic effects to the local economy and social coherence it is intended to base the project on Local Energy Communities (LECo) either as municipal enterprise or as a cooperative. As far as available local companies shall be involved in investments and thus upgrade their skills for future activities in the energy business. The project shall deliver a set of locally adapted concepts for Community based energy solutions in remote areas.
