Following the ongoing trends in European and Italian regulatory frameworks, E4G has recently extended its research activities to the topic of energy communities. Different projects with CVA (Compagnia Valdostana Acque) and COA Energia Finaosta (Centro Osservazione e Attività sull’Energia) have been activated with the goal of studying the potential of the development of energy communities in Valle d’Aosta region.
Energy communities were the research focus of the PhD candidate Matteo Moncecchi and have been studied within different master thesis projects.
