eCREW - establishing Community Renewable Energy Webs

  • Dates: May 2020 – April 2023
  • Leader: EI-JKU
  • Grant agreement number: 890362
  • Financed by



The eCREW project aims at activating and fostering the inherent – and so far underused – forces of communitydriven collective actions initiatives (CAI). Empowering citizens and giving them the tools needed to produce, store and consume energy for a) their own benefits, b) the prosperity of the (local) economy, and for c) tackling climate change is an important and indispensable step on our road to a stable, secure, energy-efficient and climate-neutral future energy system.

The eCREW approach will add substantially to the uptake of CAIs, by proposing, establishing and rolling-out a new business model, fully in line with the objectives of the Clean Energy Package for All Europeans. The cooperation within a CREW will maximize renewables uptake and energy efficiency, jointly and individually, and is enabled through an award-winning smartphone app software system developed and field-tested in the H2020 project PEAKapp.
