MissionCitizen energy stands for a regenerative energy transition based on decentralized structures, which corresponds to democratic, social and ecological values. This corresponds to our basic understanding that economic goals should be put in the service of social purposes.
We are aiming at building a grassroots network for Germany's citizens to unite and become energy community experts. Our members are united by the conviction that the energy transition can only be successfully continued by involving citizen energy.
What We DoBBEn represents with its 250 members about 500.000 energy citizens in Germany. Members are engaged as individuals, energy cooperatives, citizen energy communities as well as regional and nationally active associations and networks, aiming to push the energy transition and to fulfill a 100% renewable and decentralized energy system by 2030.
BBEn supports the networking of actors in the regions and is publicly committed to a culture of citizen energy. The alliance imparts knowledge and qualifications to citizen energy actors so that they can continue to actively shape the decentralized energy transition with innovative ideas.
BBEn aims at making citizen energy a main pillar of the energy supply supporting environmental and climate protection as well as the participation of local citizens. This is undertaken by dialogue processes, scientific research, education as well as networking of stakeholders.
