The CTU University Centre for Energy Efficient Buildings implements a project to support the establishment and operation of energy communities in the Czech Republic and to set the conditions for subsidy programs. Its result will be recommendations for state administration, expert analyses, methodology for establishing energy communities and practical tools and manuals for future founders and members of energy communities.
Part of the research is a sociological survey of needs and relationships within community energy, participatory design and verification of outputs with key actors in its development, and testing of the proposed models in real conditions.
