What: Working paper: “Collective self-consumption and energy communities: Overview of emerging regulatory approaches in Europe”
When: June 2019
The main aim of this paper is to understand and compare the emerging regulatory concepts in Member States. This paper therefore provides an overview of the status quo of (emerging) national approaches for collective self-consumption and energy communities and assesses their relation to the EU directives. In addition, the case of Switzerland is presented to provide for a comparison.
Please be aware that due to frequent updates of the national regulatory frameworks, it turned out to be difficult to provide an overview that is up to date for all discussed countries. Therefore, authors may not have included all latest developments and do not claim completeness. The paper will be updated regularly so please subscribe to our news at the bottom page to stay in touch with the latest updates.
