The ACCE Project

Across Europe, more than 1.5 million citizens are actively involved in the energy transition. A common challenge many face is limited access to capital.

That’s where Project ACCE hopes to provide a solution: in devising financing solutions crafted to align with the specific requirements of community energy projects.

Our approach builds on the proven success of existing Community Energy Financing Schemes (CEFS), which have already been instrumental in bolstering energy communities throughout Europe.

Financing community energy projects

The demand for innovative financing models tailored to the needs of energy communities is growing but the market is not providing adequate solutions. The market gap between available funding and the specific needs of community energy initiatives is widening.

However, all across Europe we see the emergence of new alternatives: Community Energy Financing Schemes (CEFS). Our project aims to harness the wisdom of these pioneering European models by replicating and adapting them across the continent.
