The SCCALE 203050 project carried out a series of interviews with energy communities to understand which IT- and communication tools they have found helpful for their operations. This document compiles the tools mentioned by those energy communities and classifies them into three categories:
- Tools for internal organization. Useful tools for organising your daily work as an energy community
- Tools for external communication. Tools that can help you inform your members or a wider audience
- Tools for engagement. Tools that help you reach and involve people in your projects
The guide contains a mix of open source and commercial tools.
Disclaimer by the project: The list of tools is not exhaustive and the selection is based on the tools that were recommended by energy communities themselves.
