Energy cooperatives: renewable energy thanks to strong local rootsEnergy cooperatives: renewable energy thanks to strong local roots have been energy cooperatives for more than 120 years – but there is hardly any data available on structures and perspectives. WSL-researchers collected this data in a survey.12/12/2018 11:00:00 PMRenewable energy thanks to local roots

The National Research Programme "Energy Turnaround" (NRP 70) focuses on the scientific and technological aspects of the change in energy strategy and the corresponding changeover to a new energy system for Switzerland. NRP 70 cooperates closely with the National Research Programme "Managing Energy Consumption" (NRP 71). The research work will continue until the end of 2018.
