What’s the interest to invest in energy communities? A study presented at the Microgrid Global Innovation Forum in London, shows how tariff schemes substantially change energy communities’ gains: from 7 to 120 €/MWh.    

What’s the interest to invest in energy communities? With just a rooftop solar pv system, a windmill and a battery or electric vehicle, prosumers can benefit from their self-produced electricity as well as their surplus energy, by feeding it back into the grid and trading it with their neighborhood.
