Energy communities and collective actions: Yearly policy brief on regulation

Some EU Member States have seen strong growth of energy communities since 2022. Austria, for example, reports over 400 registered energy communities and France 1801. This dynamic has been caused by regulatory frameworks that became more mature, by subsidies, an increasing number of existing examples and finally by
the energy crisis.
This policy brief starts with an overview of the transposition in all EU Member States, then discusses the development in the DECIDE partner countries based on stakeholder interactions and workshops, sheds light on organisational needs and arrangements, and finally draws a number of conclusions on how existing policy
frameworks can be improved.
