Working paper: “Collective self-consumption and energy communities: overview of emerging regulatory approaches in Europe”
Report on Regulatory Aspects of Self-Consumption and Energy Communities
Deux récentes études, datant de ce mois de juin, analyse le cadre législatif européen de l'autoconsommation collective et des communautés énergétiques locales. La première est issue du projet européen COMPILE, dont le but n'est autre que de démontrer les opportunités liées à la création d'îlots énergétiques pour la décarbonisation de l'approvisionnement énergétique, la construction communautaire et la création de bénéfices environnementaux et socio-économiques. La seconde, issue du Conseil des régulateurs européens de l'énergie, traite notamment d'exemples présents et futurs. Bonne lecture !

Authors from JOANNEUM RESEARCH, RESCOOP and Laboratory of Energy Policy have done an overview of regulatory approaches for energy communities in Europe.
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.
|( - 662kb)||This document seeks to analyse the regulatory implications of new and developing practices, such as self-consumption, Citizen Energy Communities and Renewable Energy Communities. CEER developed a regulatory approach to analyse these developments in the energy market. The analysis is based on several case studies submitted by NRAs. The document will serve as both an overview of ongoing developments in the respective Member States and also address regulatory challenges at an early stage, to enable innovation whilst ensuring that consumers benefit from these new practices.|
