New actors on the energy market: aggregators and energy communities11 of November, 2020 - REKK Energy Futures
Location: Online 15:00 - 17:00 REKK Energy Futures VIII.

With transposing the EU Clean Energy Package into national law new actors will enter the European energy markets. Frameworks developed for renewable energy communities, as defined by the recast Renewable Energy Directive and citizen energy communities, as introduced in the Internal Electricity Market Directive will enable prosumers to organize themselves and act collectively when consuming, selling, storing or even sharing their electricity. Aggregators will play an important role as intermediaries between old and new customer groups and the market.

The aim of the bilingual online event was to present the EU framework for energy communities and aggregators to stakeholders of the Central and Eastern European region and to show best practices of already functional models. In the second part of the event we gave the floor to Hungarian representatives of the energy sector to discuss current practices of aggregation in Hungary, and the needs for further transposition of the Clean Energy Package related to energy communities and aggregators.
