New: Legal support tool for energy cooperation

Legal aspects of energy cooperation are often perceived as complex. To bring focus and find agreement on the fundamentals of an energy exchange, our international project R-ACES developed a Legal Decision Support Tool. The tool generates a ready-to-use simple contract in one go.

The R-ACES project has built a new tool that will help develop energy cooperation projects between potential suppliers and customers in industrial clusters and business parks. The legal tool is easy to use and aims to lower the threshold for SMEs and other industrial stakeholders.

Industrial sites and business parks are key in initiating and accelerating energy exchange inside a region. We are proud that these practical tools will support energy cooperation in the ecoregions

About the Legal Decision Support Tool

The tool is an easy-to-use fill-in contract template, with explanatory notes. The tool brings focus and helps finding agreement on the fundamentals of an energy exchange project, like sales and delivery. The tool generates a ready-to-use simple contract in one go. A guide to the contract template and EU energy laws are also available. Questions can be posted in a forum and will be answered by the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology in the Netherlands – the coordinating institution.

Toolbox: 3 practical tools enabling energy cooperation

The Legal Decision Support Tool is part of the R-ACES Toolbox. R-ACES established a set of 3 specific energy cooperation tools:

These 3 practical tools support the entire process of organising an ecoregion and the collaboration inside of it.
