Free Choices 2030

Welcome to the FREE Choices section which includes an online tool offering the latest information on a range of sustainable energy solutions for households, businesses and agriculture in rural areas.

The decentralised energy solutions featured here improve energy efficiency, contribute to security of supply and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in rural areas. What’s more they offer potential savings opportunities and in some cases an income source for rural dwellers. For each solution, research consultancy Ecofys has developed factsheets that contain information regarding main benefits, technical workings, suitability, and related costs, savings and earnings. The list of rural energy solutions is non-exhaustive and the FREE initiative remains open to engage with interested stakeholders.

Cleaner and energy efficient technologies can tremendously improve the energy situation of rural areas – check out the solutions already available now and make the right energy choice today!
