We are GRETA, a project that paves the path to active energy citizenship and communities. Energy citizenship means that every one of us can use energy in a sustainable way and participate in the energy transition.


Energy citizenship

To reach climate neutrality, we need citizens to actively participate in the energy transition. In GRETA, we are studying the conditions of and barriers to energy citizenship and exploring ways to promote it across the EU.



Why is energy citizenship needed?

Older people as (invisible) energy citizens


Case studies

We are studying energy citizenship using a multinational survey and six participatory case studies that will take a deeper look at different energy communities in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain. In these communities, citizens are testing renewable energy, using electric vehicles, monitoring their energy consumption and participating in the sustainable planning of mobility within a city.
