Facilitating demo projects has been a cornerstone of the work of WISIONS since its inception in 2004. We focus on enabling innovative solutions to energy-related needs and on stimulating the productive use of renewable energy at local level. To date we have supported nearly 100 projects.
One of the main challenges to the broad transition to sustainable energy is the lack of trust in – and information about – new technologies. Case studies can act as shining examples of good practice to demonstrate the potential that holistic energy transitions can have for communities. For that reason, WISIONS has supported over 130 innovative energy projects that are environmentally, economically and socially sound, including the fostering of knowledge exchanges between practitioners.
