The Taskforce Local Energy Communities was launched to (i) to provide an overview of the existing legal developments regarding energy communities in the EU and (ii) to build recommendations for the European Commission based on the inputs received from BRIDGE surveys and interviews.
BRIDGE is a European Commission initiative which unites Horizon 2020 Smart Grid and Energy Storage Projects to foster continuous knowledge sharing amongst projects. As a result, these projects deliver conclusions and recommendations about the future exploitation of the project results, with a single voice, through four different Working Groups representing the main areas of interest: Business Models, Consumer Engagement, Data Management and Regulations.
