Policy Paper | Barriers and benefits of energy communities in the European Union

Energy communities are an effective means to decentralize and renew our energy systems with sustainable solutions as they are usually based on renewable energy. They have already started emerging in 1970´s, yet there has been a significant increase in their development only in recent years, also in terms of their introduction into the EU legislation. Especially in Western and Northern European countries the concept already enjoys vast popularity. On the other hand, in Central and Eastern European countries (further referred to as CEE) energy communities are only beginning to emerge. The policy brief (based on literature and interviews with various stakeholders ) examines the benefits energy communities may bring, and more importantly, the main obstacles remaining in their way for greater evolution in the CEE region – and especially Visegrad countries (V4). As these initiatives progress, sharing the best practices will ensure the success of the community energy in the energy transition. Writes Alžbeta Gavalcová.

Policy Paper | Barriers and benefits of energy communities in the European Union

Energetické komunity jsou účinným prostředkem decentralizace a obnovy našich energetických systémů pomocí udržitelných řešení, protože jsou obvykle založeny na obnovitelné energii. Začaly se objevovat již v 70. letech 20. století, avšak k jejich výraznému rozvoji došlo až v posledních letech, a to i z hlediska jejich zavedení do legislativy EU. Zejména v zemích západní a severní Evropy se tato koncepce již těší velké oblibě. Naproti tomu v zemích střední a východní Evropy (dále jen SVE) se energetická společenství teprve začínají vytvářet. Tento politický brief (založený na literatuře a rozhovorech s různými zúčastněnými stranami ) zkoumá výhody, které mohou energetická společenství přinést, a především hlavní překážky, které jim stále stojí v cestě k většímu rozvoji v regionu střední a východní Evropy - a zejména v zemích Visegrádské skupiny (V4). Jak tyto iniciativy postupují, sdílení osvědčených postupů zajistí úspěch komunitní energetiky v energetickém přechodu. Píše Alžbeta Gavalcová.

iRozhlas.cz | Fossil fuel boilers are not banned by the European Union

The information about an EU-wide ban on gas and coal boilers, that has been recently circulating on social media, is not true. The aim of the new European directive is not to ban them, but to promote the phasing out of these boilers in line with the 2050 carbon neutrality targets. Viktor Daněk, deputy director of the EUROPEUM Institute, described the nature of the directive to the iROZHLAS.cz project Ověřovna.
