We need to provide fiscal advantages for local communities to establish local energy cooperatives

Communities do not want to engage in energy production projects because of the administrative burden and the high proportions of CapEX). Financial support as loans, subsidies etc., could enable local communities (citizens and small and medium enterprises (SMEs)) to invest in (collective) renewable energy infrastructure (i.e. solar panels, wind turbines) and establish a local green energy cooperative. This measure could be complemented with support for the establishment of technical feasibility studies on renewable energy.
