The First Women’s Energy Community in Greece, will be established in spring. The implementation of this initiative was undertaken by Alice Corovessi, Managing Director of INZEB, in collaboration with S.E.G.E and ELECTRA Energy Cooperative, while interest in participating in this project has been already expressed by 50 women from the regions of Central Macedonia, Crete and Peloponnese.
Speaking to APE-MPE, Alice Corovessi stated that those interested in participating in the energy community, cover all age categories, “with particular interest showed by women entrepreneurs close to 50, more familiar to the concept of energy communities and the importance of the benefit that will result for themselves and their businesses“. She also pointed out that “there is still time for more women to participate, since the expression of interest will be valid until March”.
Energy Community’s aim will be to boost individual/family incomes, local entrepreneurship, solidarity economy, in terms of energy democracy, which is an emerging social tendency, in order to offset the fossil fuels energy agenda through the energy transition to more environmentally friendly energy types.
