the Cer: the
for the Nation
The Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia has funded and assigned 5.4 million euros to the Hill Community alone using the “Concertation” instrument. As a result, RECOCER is Italy’s largest initiative dedicated to CERs.
These are resources not just for creating CERs, but also for enabling a control room for CER production processes: RECOCER will enable the ability to oversee a “industrial” process of developing projects: a form of “gymnasium” for the PNRR.
Because of its scale (15 municipalities, 50,000 residents), the CCF could serve as a demonstration for regulatory authorities, allowing them to better understand the implementation options for the RED-II Directive’s definitive transfer.
San Daniele del Friuli will shortly begin using a legally constituted CER, which will serve as a symbol of concreteness and commitment to “doing”.
With the RECOCER project, we are developing the ability to design and manage CERs by focusing on lower costs, independent evaluation skills, supplier comparison, and a mindset of “creating value and leaving it on the territory”.
With the RECOCER Project, the CCF is developing a regional management capacity for CERs, including a PNRR perspective (2.2 billion euros for CERs), making the CCF’s experience available to the FVG Municipalities.
Aspects to be cautious of: Try to prevent initiatives unrelated to RECOCER from arising on FVG territory, which would multiply costs for municipalities and result in non-interoperable CERs.
Examine the organizational models (ANR, cooperatives, srl) that favor governance and the ability to aggregate supra-municipal resources.
