• Germany’s power mix 2020

    At 251 billion kilowatt hours, renewables supplied 44 percent of Germany’s gross electricity production. The share of renewables in power consumption reached 45 percent.


LECo - Local Energy Communities

The LECo project shall respond on the needs of remote communes and settlements in arctic Scandinavia and Ireland for a sustainable energy supply. The goal is to combine new innovative technologies with locally available natural resources, and to raise awareness of energy efficiency and possibilities to use the renewable energy. The approach is based on the model of local cycle economy. In the project, Local Energy Communities (LECo) will be formed, which will create synergetic effects to the local economy and social coherence. 

The transnational project has been launched in August 2017 with seven partner organisations from Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Germany. “LECo” is funded with EUR 1.95 million by the European Union through the Interreg Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme.
