How to set up an energy community?
We would like to share the renewable energy produced by one or more of our photovoltaic installations with our neighbours, family or friends. The following informations apply whether the installation is owned by a single owner, several owners or a cooperative.
There are two types of energy communities:
- the local energy community (sharing renewable energy among grid users separated no more than 300-metres)
- the national energy community (without geographical restrictions, but without exemption from the grid fees).
The steps for the creation of the energy community are identical in both cases.
A local energy community is only feasible on the low-voltage network belonging to a single grid operator.
To facilitate the creation of an energy community, Klima-Agence provides a number of templates.
