The Energy Communities Repository has collected data from the European Union Member States on their existing policies and regulations for energy communities in the context of the Clean Energy Package. The information is published in a centralized and openly accessible database.

  • Definitions: The country fiches explain how each Member State has defined energy communities in its national law.
  • Rights and obligations: The database provides an overview of the rights and obligations of energy communities within member states.
  • Enabling framework: Member states showcase their approaches to legal, regulatory, and administrative frameworks that foster the growth of energy communities.
  • Barrier Assessment and Removal: The database points out whether Member States have conducted or planned an assessment of barriers and potential for the development of renewable energy communities
  • Support and financing schemes: The database showcases a diverse range of financial support mechanisms.

Countries in the spotlight
