A comprehensive study of renewable energy communities in nine EU countries
The EU Renewable Energy Directive has defined the character and role of renewable energy communities (RECs). The EU-funded COME RES project will facilitate the market uptake of renewable energy sources (RES) in the electricity sector and the development of RECs in nine EU countries. The project will include different socio-technological systems such as community photovoltaics, onshore wind, storage and integrated solutions. The selected countries have various levels of experience in community energy, ranging from those with exemplary performances to those that are just starting out. The project will analyse legal, socioeconomic, spatial and environmental features, detect the reasons for the slow development of RECs in some countries, establish stakeholder dialogues and develop regional action plans and business model proposals. Moreover, it will investigate good/best practice cases and develop a community platform.
