Small is Beautiful: Preserving the benefits for European citizens, communities and SME’s

Joint letter to Member State representatives and European Parliament Rapporteurs, ahead of the Electricity Market Design travelogues:

The European Council’s General orientations on the Electricity Market regulation adopted in December 2017, introduce the possibility to place an unfair financial and administrative burden on small-scale renewable and high efficiency cogeneration installations, demonstration projects, and energy communities. Allowing Member States to remove priority dispatch and exemptions on balancing responsibilities without any pre-condition related to market-readiness will put small-scale players at an extreme disadvantage and undermine the necessary uptake of such installations in Europe.
