“Flanders in Belgium has a very strict interpretation of the REDII directive with energy communities being the only ones entitled to share energy, whereas Spain have generalised the right for self-consumption of renewable energy beyond the building.

The report concludes with a series of 19 recommendations and takeaways to improve the regulation of existing and future national regulations.
