With the FlexCommunity, the EU H2020 projects edgeFLEX, FEVER and Platone are introducing a platform to collaborate with other projects and stakeholders that work on exploiting flexibilities in the energy system.

The goal of the FlexCommunity is to create a bigger impact by joining forces. We want to:

  • gain a comprehensive understanding of the similarities and differences of the technical approaches,
  • strengthen cooperation in the development and implementation of advanced organisational structures and business models like energy communities,
  • align terminology and communication efforts.
