What are the characteristics of an Energy Community according to Italian regulations?

Monday 9 November 2020

To create an Energy Community you must be sure that it meets the criteria required by the legislation that came into force in 2020: – The members of a community must be connected to the public distribution network within the same medium/low voltage transformer booth. – The participants’ photovoltaic systems must have been activated after 1 March 2020 and may not exceed the individual power of 100kW and total power of 200kW. – The objective of the community must not be linked to economic profits, so revenues from the sale of energy cannot be the main source of income. – The attention of the community must be directed to the environmental, economic and social benefit for all, through the collective self-consumption of energy from renewable sources. – The sale of energy must be regulated by a private law contract.
