Introducing CSOPs – e-learning at the STEP project

How can consumers team up and become a prosumer group? How does a cooperative work? What is a CSOP and why is it an innovative solution for consumers? Providing answers to these questions is important both for consumers and advisers involved in advocacy for consumers affected by energy poverty.

The SCORE partner Federacja Konsumentów, a consumer association in Poland, organised an online course on these questions as part of the STEP project (HORIZON 2020). The seminar provided information about CSOP, an operating and investment scheme that is part of the module adapted by the other STEP project countries: Czech Republic, Portugal, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Bulgaria, Great Britain and Cyprus.

The STEP project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 847080.
