Energy Communities and the Next Commercial Revolution of Europe’s Energy System

25th May 2023, Europe 12:30 - 14:00 CET

How can you provide clean energy to local communities while receiving greater ROI?

Energy Communities enable multiple residents or businesses to share the benefits of a single solar plant. This is a democratisation of the energy system, where energy can be generated on any suitable building and then shared and/or sold within the local community. It enables prosumers to trade with consumers. What’s more, it enables small consumers without their own roof (e.g. apartments), to directly own and/or consume from a larger plant nearby. This opens the solar panel market to the half of all Europeans living in MFH, who to this point have been excluded from this market. Any roof can supply energy to nearby consumers – schools or businesses can place themselves in the centre of their community.

These changes are already happening in Spain and are expected to arrive in the rest of Europe shortly. How can these new opportunities be best explored?

Join E.on and a select group of likeminded executives for a Meet the Boss virtual roundtable as we discuss the lessons learned from Spain’s energy communities, and how your organisation can provide clean energy and increase ROI.
