DECIDE Resource


Yearly policy briefs on regulation 2021

This the first of a series of regulatory reviews in DECIDE. It provides an overview of the transposition status of EU Directives related to Energy Communities and compares design elements. In the last months, before its delivery, particular progress was made in some new member states with almost all of them having an ongoing legislative process to transpose the EU directives on Energy Communities. Estonia, Croatia, Poland, Romania and Hungary for example have presented legal frameworks for CECs, RECs, or for both that are described in this report. Furthermore, the report discusses barriers and enablers of energy communities identified in DECIDE and related projects. The report shows that EU Member states have different starting points, energy histories and energy system needs.
