Organisational structure of the Union

The day-to-day operation of the Community Energy Union takes place in three working groups.

We keep our members up-to-date on developments, inform them and prepare positions to advance common goals. The working groups are open to all members.

Legislative Working Group - focuses on advocacy and meeting goals in the form of law amendments and implementing regulations. It also monitors developments at European level and highlights possible lobbying opportunities.
Head: Eliška Beranová,

Subsidy Working Group - gathers members' requests and experiences and advocates for appropriate conditions and sufficient funding for community energy in subsidy programmes
Leader: Ondřej Pašek,

Implementation group - also known as the "know-how" group. This serves for the exchange of experiences of our members and the adoption of good practices. The members of the group share experiences, establish cooperation, search for and analyse different approaches to community energy in other countries, and inform the membership about them.
Leader: Tomáš Jagoš,
