The concept of energy communities was introduced in the Greek reality with the Law 4513/2018. This legislation has been welcomed in Europe as an innovative, participatory tool that enables the local community (natural persons, SMEs, and local authorities) to contribute to the transition of the country towards clean energy sources. Unfortunately, the recent developments on the framework of energy communities in Greece threatens their existence and development and, thus, the participation of citizens in the energy transition.

The report, commonly developed by Greenpeace Greece, WWF, Electra Energy and maps the problems of the legal framework for energy communities in Greece and makes recommendations to promote their development and contribution to a green and fair energy transition.
