Achieving a new European Energy Awareness.

Project description

A new generation of near zero-emission citizens

For Europe to reach its ambitious Green Deal targets for greenhouse gas emissions, citizens will need to play a much more active role in transforming the energy sector. The EU-funded AURORA project will therefore empower several thousand citizens across five locations in Denmark, England, Portugal, Slovenia, and Spain to make more informed energy decisions. They will monitor their individual energy behaviour in a mobile app, and receive automated recommendations in return. By crowdfunding local energy communities and building ca. 1 megawatt in photovoltaic power, these citizens will become active ‘prosumers’, transforming the energy system at large and democratising its governance. In particular, marginalised groups and young generations will be targeted.
