CEER’s recently published White Paper provides much insight into how active customers, renewables self-consumers, renewable energy communities (RECs), and local energy communities (LECs) are perceived by NRAs. Given that REScoops only recently registered on the radar of many NRAs, it is essential that a common understanding is being developed around ‘who’ or ‘what’ REScoops are, the benefits they offer society, the energy system and the environment, the challenges they face, and what they need from regulators so they can benefit from a level playing field. In this paper, we address and respond to several points covered by CEER’s White Paper.
