Introduced with D.L. 162/2019, Renewable Energy Communities (CERs) offer people the opportunity to gather to equip themselves with shared plants for the production and self-consumption of energy from renewable sources. This is a simple idea that prefigures the development of zero kilometre energy and that, through the transposition of the European REDII Directive and the funding of the PNRR, can significantly affect the achievement of energy autonomy and decarbonisation targets. A first exploration of the theme was carried out on the occasion of the previous edition of Urbanpromo. Given the relevance of the current experiences, it is worth checking the progress of the projects with a focus on the social value of energy communities and the ability to aggregate people and associations around shared goals of energy transition.
