One of the challenges when transitioning to clean energy and positive energy districts lies with the regulatory framework that governs energy generation, storage, transmission and distribution. Energy companies are being de-centralised and local energy cooperatives are forming across Europe.
+CityxChange will communicate and cooperate with the Commission for Regulating Utilities (CRU) to pilot and test a range of innovative energy technologies and services, over the life of the project.
The benefits of the new energy services for local citizens will be compared to similar changes taking place in our partner countries. Limerick will be Ireland’s first positive energy city – benefiting both the planet and the people and insuring our sustainable future.
