BRIDGE - Energy Communities in the EU

BRIDGE is a European Commission initiative which unites Horizon 2020 Smart Grid and Energy Storage Projects to create a structured view of cross-cutting issues which are encountered in the demonstration projects and may constitute an obstacle to innovation. The BRIDGE process fosters continuous knowledge sharing amongst projects thus allowing them to deliver conclusions and recommendations about the future exploitation of the project results, with a single voice, through four different Working Groups representing the main areas of interest: Business Models, Consumer Engagement, Data Management and Regulations.

The main objectives of the present report are (i) to provide an overview of the existing legal developments regarding energy communities in the EU and (ii) to build recommendations for the European Commission (EC) based on the inputs received from the BRIDGE survey and interviews conducted with actors of the EU countries covered in the report (Germany, the Netherlands, France, Belgium (Wallonia), Greece, Portugal, Luxembourg, Slovenia and Ireland).
