SCORE facilitates consumer co-ownership in RE in pilot regions in Italy, Czech Republic and Germany by applying the Consumer Stock Ownership Plan (CSOP) as a financing mechanism. SCORE highlights the potential of CSOPs for the inclusion of underrepresented groups. In the German (Essen) and Czech (Litomerice) pilots, the focus is on photovoltaic systems, in Italy (Val di Susa, one of the first Italian RECs in December 2019 with the participation of 21 municipalities) it is the conversion of block heat systems from diesel to woodchips; all pilots are designed as Renewable Energy Communities (RECs) in view of the new EU regulatory framework, the Renewable Energy Directive II (RED II). The aim is to further develop the pilots into fully fledged RE cluster. The challenge is to test the CSOP business model with regard to corresponding the technical challenge and the inclusion of heterogenous co-investors.
