About us


The RESCHOOL project consortium congregates the necessary competence and critical mass to ensure the achievement of the project goals and it brings together 16 partners from 7 European countries.

UdG is coordinating RESCHOOL. An interdisciplinary team of two research groups, the eXiT group and the Sociology Unit, work together in the project. eXiT expertise is focused on data driven methods and artificial intelligence principles, while the Sociology Unit combines expertise in the study of social and family dynamics, demographic and longitudinal data analysis.

UdG will analyse and identify social drivers at the Spanish pilot. Further, UdG will carry out technological activities and develop data energy services based on artificial intelligence and data mining solutions and will also play a relevant role in the dissemination, communication, and exploitation of the project.

Core competence in studying the governance of energy transitions to sustainability, with a solid experience with qualitative techniques, concepts and comparative analyses of a sort that are very thematically appropriate to RESCHOOL.

UiS will implement contextual analysis at urban and multiple scales, with attention to the roles of multiple stakeholders, and will contribute to tasks on energy flexibility services and adaptation of energy communities.

Internationally renowned research university which bases its research on targeting four themes (of which two are sustainability-energy and dynamics of youth) and participates in important international networks (CHARM-EU, LERU).


UU will focus on the development of the serious energy game app in collaboration with external partners for citizens’ long-term engagement and empowerment in energy applications through research on persuasive and inclusive serious game design, coupled with artificial intelligence techniques, energy models, and input from smart meter data, to provide informed and reliable feedback to citizens about optimal energy management within households and local communities.

Spanish company developing flexible technological solutions aiming to a decarbonised and digitalisation environment as well as promoting a fair energetic transition.

Bamboo energy will develop the energy community platform and flexibility trading and energy services.

Research institute RISE has about 100 testbeds and demonstration facilities, instruments in future-proofing technologies, products and services.


RISE will be carrying out tasks within the field of digital platforms for data management and citizen engagement and how the platforms can be used for value creation and co-creation in a community. RISE will also investigate the possibility to apply SROI on business models for energy communities as well as flexibility services for energy communities.

EREF, as the EU umbrella organisation of national renewable energy, monitors energy law, policy and market developments as well as market distortion.


EREF will demonstrate existing as well as potential economic benefits that are or could be generated within the pilot communities, as well as barriers that prevent providing services to the system, market conditions and system integration of collective self-consumption.

ESCI is a non-profit organisation that supports national and international research and innovation initiatives in communicating effectively and leveraging their dissemination potential to a non-expert audience.


ESCI will promote the communication and dissemination activities.

Km0 Energy promotes Energy Communities across the territory of Catalonia and provides the technical, legal, economic and participatory tools necessary to implement an Energy Community project.


Km0 Energy will provide their expertise relevant in the development of the RESCHOOL project in the Spanish pilot in Girona.

Environmental consultancy for urban energy transition which helps cities switching from fossil to renewable energy. E-mobility systems, clean energy and ICT are their focus. RESF develops innovative projects and offers services to support the energy transition in urban environments.


RESF will be leading the Dutch pilot in Amsterdam (Eastern Docklands).

Citizenship-driven innovation developing efficient solutions for measuring, storing and sharing local energy in energy communities at a flexibility market. This also includes developing business and legal models that can make the systems profitable.

ELEC will lead the Swedish pilot.

COEN is a citizen energy community. Its main purpose is to develop projects that will allow its members to generate and share their own energy from renewable sources and will protect them from energy insecurity and energy poverty.


CoEn will lead the Greek pilot in Athens.

Areas of R&D activities such as machine learning and computer vision, semantic multimedia analysis, large scale indexing and retrieval, smart cities, data mining in social media.


CERTH will mostly contribute to the gamification task, social analytics, as well as the visual analytics dashboard.

100% open source IoT device management platform, which is applied by several EU cities and government organisations. Applications range from crowd management to energy management and lighting control.


OR will develop and document a complete Energy Management system for an energy cooperation. The solution will be accompanied by documentation which enables an energy cooperation, together with their IT experts, to set it up, host and manage it for their own organisation and neighbourhood. The implementation will be validated, tested, and improved in the Dutch pilot.

Public commitment and specific objectives on energy sustainability, electric charging, and housing policy plans by allocating economic and human resources to grow in a sustainable way.


Partner of pilot 2 in the Netherlands, AMS will also have a relevant role in the replicability of the Dutch pilot in other neighbourhoods of the city.

Supramunicipal Entity of the province of Girona. Diputació de Girona is the legal body in charge of the competences allocated to the province and the public responsible of providing legal and technical assistance to create local energy communities.


This entity’s role is to be the partner of the Spanish pilot in Girona as well as the further deployment in other towns in the province.

Collaborative energy community platform focused on the research findings in the field of social and behavioural sciences and providing advice to help reduce the peak loads based on price and environmental signals.


LCLF will be working on several tasks related to the use case and business case analysis, the expected impact from the pilots, the Intergenerational social drivers for community engagement and capacity building, the corresponding feedback and visualization concepts, and the technical viability and interoperability of the RESCHOOL services.
