Policy brief 1: Engage Citizens in the Energy Transition

GRETA emphasizes the need to enhance regulatory frameworks to ensure the meaningful inclusion of all individuals in the energy transition. While acknowledging the value of policies that enable citizen participation in formalized Citizen Energy Communities (CECs) or Renewable Energy Cooperatives (RECs), GRETA recognizes that energy citizenship encompasses a broader spectrum of activities.

To close the gap between already engaged citizens and those underrepresented in energy transition GRETA recommends
1) implementing policy incentives that acknowledge and compensate for time and financial commitment beyond formalized CECs and RECs and
2) establishing funding and training programs for energy intermediaries to support energy citizenship.
