When it comes to establishing a citizen energy community, everyone counts. We want the EU Neon Project to be a project by and for everyone. Also, for middle-aged people. That’s why we want to ask them what renewable energy generation and storage in buildings means to them.
“I am thinking of solar panels, which is the most popular and well-known right now. There are also other building-integrated elements that can generate photovoltaic energy. There is also wind energy, but I don’t know what state it is in to be implemented (urban or rural environments). I am aware of the existence of geothermal energy, but I think it is easier to implement once it is going to be built and more costly and difficult once the building is already in place.”
“I know you can store it in bricks and windows, but, today, I think the most common is a battery. There are possibilities and research to use it in other devices. But I understand that a battery, an accumulator, allows you to store when you don’t have energy available in real time.”
