The model solution consists of an energy community that has three essential additional functions compared to its actual purpose:

  • Blackout precautions and prevention
  • Participatory design and awareness-raising
  • Integration of an industrial company

The overall technical, economic and organizational design of the energy community is to be based on a participatory process involving all stakeholders. In addition to the actual operation of the energy community, awareness-raising measures are to form flanking measures.

The solution is transferable to all municipalities in Austria.
