Model Assessment Structure Proposal

Holstenkamp, Lars; Kriel, Christian

According to the recast Renewable Energy Directive (RED II), member states (MS) of the European Union (EU) are supposed to take out assessments of barriers for and potential of renewable energy communities in their countries (RED II, Art. 22 Para. 3). The European legislator has not specified this provision, i.e. the content and form of these assessments has not been clarified (yet). It is only clear from the legal text that these assessments should be the basis of the “enabling framework” (RED II, Art. 22 Para. 4) that EU MS shall provide. This study aims at developing a template for the assessments. Moreover, a model assessment (only a rapid assessment, though) will be carried out for two countries – Germany and Poland. In the paper, we describe the draft structure of the proposed assessment process. We give an overview of the process and describe the elements of the process. Most of these are detailed in further background papers.

This is Background Paper #1 of a study on a model assessment of potential and barriers to the development of renewable energy communities at the national level, commissioned by
