Within 30 June 2021, Member states are requested to transpose their national law the recast Renewable Energy Directive 2018/2001/EU (RED II). The directive is a stepping-stone that recognizes among others, the possibility for citizens, local governments and SMEs to actively participate in the energy market and contribute to achieving the higher EU climate ambition for 2030 by introducing the legal entity of Renewable Energy Communities (RECs).
The webinar, happening right after the deadline for transposition, wants to offer an overview of the work carried out across EU member states in including RECs within their national law, with a particular focus on Eastern countries. Experts from Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Croatia will contribute to the discussion.
Organised as part of the DECIDE Horizon 2020 project, that aims to gain a better understanding of how energy communities and energy efficiency services are established and managed.
