Opinion piece by Ioanna Theodosiou about the new reality Renewable Energy Communities need to confront.
The upcoming transposition of the RED II (2018/2001) and IEMD (2019/944) Directives and the latest bill (L.4795/2020) that gives an end to the fit-in-tariff system for the energy communities from 2022 compose a new reality that Renewable Energy Communities need to face.
