EnerCoop Syrdall S.C.

Initiative phase: Well established and running

EnerCoop Syrdall S.C. is an energy cooperative founded in 2019 with the aim of supporting the energy transition in the Syr Valley.

EnerCoop Syrdall S.C.

The cooperative wants to actively shape the energy transition by developing and implementing renewable energy projects. It can count on the support of the municipalities of Contern, Niederanven, Sandweiler and Schüttringen, which have made municipal roofs available for the installation of PV systems.

The cooperative has around 140 members. The cooperative is organised on a grassroots democratic basis. Each member has one vote at the general meeting, regardless of the number of shares, and can thus actively participate in the cooperative's activities.

So far, the cooperative has installed seven photovoltaic systems and thus produced enough electricity to cover the annual consumption of 272 people. Further projects are being developed and will be presented soon.
