Interreg NWE project cVPP wins 2020's EU Sustainable Energy Citizens’ Award

The Interreg North-West Europe Programme proudly announces that the NWE project “Community-based virtual power plant” (cVPP) was the winner of the #EUSEW2020 Citizens’ Award.

The EU Sustainable Energy Awards' competition recognises the year’s top sustainable energy projects in the categories of Engagement, Innovation and Youth. Nine projects were shortlisted in 2020 to compete for the Citizens’ Award.

Led by the Technical University of Eindhoven (NL), cVPP has developed three community-owned virtual power plants in communities with already established renewable energy generation infrastructure. They are cloud-based energy management systems that run on a series of algorithms based on decisions taken by the renewable energy producing community.
