What we do

Rural communities engaged with positive energy PLUS

COMPOSE PLUS is a 16 months project with the main objective to increase the share of renewable local energy sources in energy mix strategies and plans from 7 MED countries. The project builds upn an existing COMPOSE tool which was developed trhoughout the previous project COMPOSE. It aims to provide a synthesis model for RES development planning and therefore for the increase of RES in energy mixes of selected areas, encouraging the development of local business in combination with the development of local added value chains. As a horizontal principle the project composes the knowledge, sectoral policies and financial instruments to promote and invite green investments based on local potentials.

Objectives

COMPOSE PLUS key objective is to increase the capacity of local communities for efficient planning and implementation of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Energy Efficiency (EE) measures as a development opportunity within the EU Green Deal. The project consortium works on transferring, mainstreaming, and broader uptake of the COMPOSE TOOLBOX (https://reselplan-toolbox.eu).

During its lifetime, the project will capitalize on the successful implementation of the COMPOSE model for sustainable development planning, demonstrating its practical use with a focus on co-creation bottom-up approaches and new business models and by combining social and technical innovation. It will support policymakers and development planners to mature projects towards clean energy transition, focusing especially on rural and island communities of the MED area.
