The creation of a model Energy Community of collective self-consumption, based on clean forms of energy, in Athens is the goal of the Athens Niroo Community action. The action is implemented by the social enterprise Electra Energy Cooperative, educating refugees, immigrants and Greeks in the production and consumption of clean electricity.

What is an energy community?

Energy Communities are cooperative schemes that allow citizens, small and medium-sized enterprises and local governments to be active in the energy sector and to be actively involved in the energy transition.

Athens Niroo Community

"The Athens Niroo Community consists of a group of three organizers and 9 refugees, who participate in the program of the Municipality of Athens CuringtheLimbo. "Through this initiative, we are activating and educating the people of Athens, locals and refugees, to create an energy community based on clean forms of energy", he will tell Athens 9.84, Christos Brettos Communications Director of Electra Energy Cooperative.

"The information and education of the participants is done at the level of theory through workshops, participatory seminars and presentations, but also practical" he explains Mr. Brettos. "Within the next month we are planning 2 photovoltaic construction workshops, and we will build two photovoltaic, which will be installed in some buildings in our intervention neighborhoods that are Metaxourgeio, Kolonos, Kerameikos and Akadimias Platonos. These are small photovoltaics, which can not produce much energy and will be used mainly for educational and experiential purposes.

"In our next participatory workshop we will gather the people who are now interested, after being informed, to participate and thus establish this energy community, what will be its actions, its statute, etc. When we have the strategic plan ready, we will present it to the municipality of Athens to help finance it. I consider this to be a very innovative and original program as it includes refugees and immigrants from our city in issues such as clean energy and energy poverty. " points out Mr. Brettos. 

The next step

"Our ultimate goal is to create an Energy Community of collective production of self-consumption, in Athens so that some Greek and foreign families have the opportunity to supply their homes with clean energy," he emphasizes. Mr. Brettos. "To build a large photovoltaic in a space e.g. in Eleonas or on the roofs of buildings, which could also meet the energy needs of a social structure of the municipality of Athens. "An energy community can also be active in the field of energy saving or electricity."

Co-Athens

The co-Athens is implemented by the European pilot program of the Municipality of Athens CuringtheLimbo through the Development and Tourism Promotion Company of the Municipality of Athens (EATA). The program is co-financed by the ERDF under the UIA program.
