Stakeholder Report on Financial Innovation for Prosumer Expansion
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,...

Key technical findings and recommendations for prosumer communities
This document presents conclusions and recommendations based on the technical findings of the PROSEU project to assist prosumers to choose their suitable renewable prosumer technology depending on their need, demands, size and location. Further, it offers recommendations that can support the implementation and mainstreaming of prosumer technologies. Besides this, it also gives an overview of the key prosumer technologies and their technical, economical, ecological and social parameters as well...

Beyond instrumentalism: Broadening the understanding of social innovation in socio-technical energy systems
Social innovation is an important dimension of current transformations in energy systems. It can refer to alternative business models, novel policy instruments, financing schemes, participatory governance approaches to energy questions, or new discourses. Its significance for energy systems is often considered in narrow instrumentalist terms, reducing it to a tool serving particular policy objectives. Grounding the concept in social science and humanities insights, this review essay proposes a...

Transformative innovation and translocal diffusion
This paper develops a conceptual understanding of transformative innovations as shared activities, ideas and objects across locally rooted sustainability initiatives that explore and develop alternatives to incumbent and (perceived) unsustainable regimes that they seek to challenge, alter or replace. We synthesize empirical work from two European research projects (TRANSIT and ARTS), in which initiatives and networks were empirically studied, to develop a broader conceptual understanding of the...

Transposition Guidance for citizen energy policies
This paper aims to inform and facilitate the transposition and the implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II, 2018/2001) and the Internal Electricity Market Directive (IEMD, 2019/944) in combination with the Governance Regulation (GR, 2018/1999). It focuses specifically on the provisions regarding the newly established rights of citizens like self-consumption and energy communities. It provides recommendations to be applied when drafting national legislation and regulation; it...

Policies for Prosumer Business Models in the EU
In this policy brief, we build on the previous discussions through an analysis of the regulatory and broader institutional challenges facing these emerging business models for the nine member states in scope1. We therefore seek to address the following questions: In which member states can these business models exist and why? What are the key policy constraints and enablers for their replication in other contexts? How can policymakers enable their diffusion to disrupt or consolidate existing...

Finance and justice in low-carbon energy transitions
Up to $61trillion of power systems investment is needed to fulfil the Paris Agreement. The mobilisation of so much capital is a huge challenge. As such, energy policy is changing to meet the needs of commercial finance. However, very little has been done to question the justice implications of this capital mobilisation, and what alternatives there are to commercially-oriented finance for low carbon energy systems. This paper uses a comparative analysis of two developed economies to explore how...
