REScoop.eu is now a full member of Cooperatives Europe

REScoop.eu got accepted as a full member of Cooperatives Europe, the European branch of the International Cooperative Alliance. The General Assembly of Cooperatives Europe gathered on the island of Malta yesterday and unanimously accepted REScoop.eu as its 7th sector organisation. Cooperatives Europe represents all European cooperatives and acts as the European branch of the International Cooperative Alliance.

Over the past 4 years the European federation of renewable energy cooperatives (REScoop.eu) has grown steadily. Today it represents more than half of the 3,000 European local energy communities. These intiatives produce, distribute and/or supply energy from renewable sources all accross Europe. An increasing amount of initiatives are also shifting their attention to energy savings and e-mobility. REScoop.eu actively supports these initiatives and represents local energy communities towards EU policy makers. As a federation it aims to give all European citizens the chance to actively engage in the energy transition by taking ownership of renewable energy production installations.
