The revised Climate, Energy and Environmental Aid Guidelines (CEEAG) were recently published by the European Commission setting specific rules on how the state aid can be allocated to private entities. These new Guidelines will have significant implications for how Member States will implement supportive frameworks for renewable energy communities.
On the 8th of July 2021, REScoop.eu is organising a workshop to discuss what support schemes Member States are putting in place to incentivise community ownership of renewables. The workshop will share insights on how the new Guidelines need to be revised in order to reinforce policy innovation for supporting energy communities and to align with the Clean Energy Package's promise to bring Europe's citizens along in the energy transition.
A representative from the European Commission (DG competition) is invited to share their views on the topic.
Revision of the state aid guidelines - a complicated but vital tool for the energy transition
Friday, 9 July 2021, 14h00 to 15h30
In addition to our workshop, EREF organises a workshop that will provide decision-makers from national governments, the European Parliament and European Commission with an analysis of the official draft EEAG as well as recommendations on how to better align them with European Directives, especially the RED II and upcoming RED III, and the overall objectives of the Green Deal.
You will soon receive a separate invitation from our EREF colleagues. In case of questions, please contact Rolline Skehan or Johannes Vollmer.
This workshop is organised in collaboration with the INTERREG ECCO project. The positive effects of the project’s activities are possible thanks to financial support from the European Regional Development Fund provided by the Interreg North-West Europe programme.
