Principles for Prosumer Policy Options

Policy Brief

This report offers a set of principles for prosumer policy options that allow prosumers to become an integral part of the energy system. It aims to inform and influence National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) as well as transposition into national legislation and regulation of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II), the Electricity Market Directive (EMD) and the Governance Regulation by developing strategies around the involvement and mainstreaming of prosumers and renewable energy communities in EU countries.

To that end, this deliverable provides concrete propositions and examples on how the identified principles can be put into practice so that policymakers and political decision-makers are able to apply them when defining the final NECPs and drafting national legislation that ensures the transposition of the above-mentioned directives.
