CLEAR-X stands for “Consumers Leading the EU’s Energy Ambition Response, Expansion”. The overall objective of the project is to enable consumers to lead the energy transition by investing in renewable energy and sustainable energy (RES) and energy-efficient (EE) technologies. It aims to facilitate consumers’ access to household renewables at an affordable price, through the provision of trusted information, collective purchase schemes, and an improved regulatory framework.
Building on our past: CLEAR-X builds on learning and experience from the CLEAR 2.0 project, which focused on Western and Central Europe, and oversaw 17 group purchase projects, triggering 29,000 renewable energy installations. Thanks to that experience, we will now focus on Central and Eastern Europe and engage another 38,000 consumers to trigger €27 million worth of renewable installations. The six target countries are Bulgaria, Cyprus, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Slovakia & Slovenia.
Consumers will have access to a selection of lab-tested products (tested for energy efficiency, usability, etc), a selected installer, and a trusted third-party contact point throughout their purchase journey. As a result, consumers will be able to easily adopt RES and EE technologies and adapt their energy consumption behaviour, translating into lasting energy and monetary savings at the household level.
