Citizens' Energy Drives Local Economies - Current Practice and Clean Energy Package Perspective

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Wednesday, 06 December 2017

Venue: Contact Organizer  |  City: Brussels, Belgium

European citizens, their associations, cooperatives, local authorities, SMEs and local stakeholders' clusters become more and more visible in the European energy landscape. Citizens' energy initiativesare diverse with regards to their structure, size, scope of activities, geographical distribution and level of acknowledgment in political and legal terms across the EU. Nevertheless, all of them form part of a more global trend – an energy transition geared towards decentralized, flexible electricity generation and self-consumption.

The Commission’s proposal for the Directive on the Internal Market for Electricity foresees the adoption of an umbrella term for these citizens' initiatives – the "local energy communities" (LECS) – as well as a set of basic provisions. How to provide such initiatives with recognition and due status in the European and national regulatory frameworks? How to ensure non-discriminatory and proportionate treatment of the LECs and their access to markets? How to facilitate compatibility between LECs and relevant elements of the existing framework?

Presentations from the Commission, the Polish Energy Ministry and successful citizens’ energy initiatives will provide our members with an opportunity to discuss in depth these issues.

We warmly invite our members to join us for a lively discussion. #EUevents
