Renewable Energy Communities (REC)

renewable energy communities involve generation of energy from renewable resources and technologies, which are partly or wholly owned by local communities

Renewable Energy Sources (RES)

Renewable Energy Sources are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services.
