Citizen energy communities contributing to the energy transition have been strengthened with the adoption of the new Renewable Energy Directive and Electricity directive. Even though both directives allow for the implementation of cross-border Citizen Energy Communities, not a single one is implemented to this date in the EU.

The results were discussed in a workshop with mayors and members of the municipal administration of the region.
