Energy Alliance BBEn

Bündnis Bürgerenergie e. V.

Our Mission

To create and support a democratic, local, 100% renewable energy system. An energy autonomy. Citizens owe and control their local renewable energy plants. All decision making is in their own hands. With the EUCENA project we want to support this process through education, networking and information exchange.

About German Citizen Energy Alliance BBEn

Founded in 2014, we serve energy cooperatives, energy communities, NGOs, renewable energy activists and producers as individuals or groups, and everyone who would like to engage in renewable energy locally and fight climate change.

We support about half a million energy-active citizens living in Germany, engaging mainly in photovoltaics and wind energy installations, including producing and using renewable energy and electric car sharing pools.

We seek to serve all who wish to engage in renewable energies, to harvest renewable energy locally, to organise as energy communities, energy cooperatives, or as individuals, and those who want to utilise solar, wind and other renewable energy resources.
