CEER Position Paper on Renewable Self-Generation
Ref. C16-SDE-55-03, 16 September 2016

With increasing amounts of small-scale electricity generation (and partial storage) connected at distribution level (particularly rooftop solar and wind), self-generation has the potential to have a significant impact on Europe’s future energy system, the realisation of Europe’s renewable energy targets and the empowerment of consumers. CEER draws attention to the fact that, in order to capture the full value of self-generation for all consumers, whether self-generating or not, the wider market and network regulation framework need to be analysed (in terms of network and market development, price sensitivity, flexibility, tariff structure, etc.).
