As part of the policy related activities, PROSEU partners eco-union and Client Earth have carried out a preliminary check on the provisions on self-consumption and energy communities in the draft National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) of nine EU member states (BE, DE, ES, FR, HR, IT, NL, PT, UK). The main findings are that only France and Spain put a reasonable emphasis on the importance of self-consumption and energy communities as suggested by RED II. Germany and Italy show some efforts while the NECPs of the other five member states contain only weak or no provisions on prosumerism. Most countries don’t define neither targets nor measures.
