This report gives examples of financial innovations already available to prosumer business models and establishes how they can be integrated into the diverse financial markets in the European Union. The main goal of this report is to inspire stakeholders – such as financial institutions and community energy intermediaries – either to adopt these models or to adapt them to their respective national and local contexts. For this purpose, we give an overview of 10 cases - local initiatives, supporting organisations and/or financial institutions - and show how they have developed their model within the respective institutional environment.
