The role of energy communities in the electricity system is growing, and with the Renewable Energy Directive every EU country is urged to create a regulative space for energy communities. In this presentation we will elaborate on what energy communities are, what activities they can participate in and what value they can generate. Added to that, we will show what an energy community in the Netherlands can entail in practice.
Presented by André Zeijseink & Jasmine Kleij
