H2020-LC-SC3-EC-1-2018-2019-2020: The role of consumers in changing the market through informed decision and collective actions

Proposals are expected to:

  • Identify and address regulatory barriers and contractual conditions with utilities, suppliers, grid operators, technology providers etc. for cooperative actions, possibly linking activities with structural solutions involving public authorities;
  • Demonstrate that collectively organised energy-related actions are financially viable and attractive to the consumer-members of the energy community.
  • Identify and implement solutions to address split incentives (e.g. allowing tenants to set up/join the consumer driven collective action);
  • Demonstrate collective actions of energy consumers based on the solutions and business approaches using digital tools and technologies (such as digital platforms or blockchain transactions).
  • Address the risk of "rebound effects" and propose measures to counteract them.
  • Involve all relevant stakeholders and consumers for the successful implementation of the action and their support should be demonstrated.
  • Take issues of consumer data ownership and data privacy into account.
