Publication - May 31, 2016
Brussels - There are many ways for citizens, small businesses and communities to contribute to the energy transition, actively participating in different aspects of the energy market to become true 'energy citizens'.

Citizens are no longer resigned to the role of passive consumers, but have the potential to be energy producers, or 'prosumers', particularly through self-generation of renewable energy, storage, energy conservation and participation in demand response.

The aim of this report is to look at different options of EU legal framework for prosumers' rights post-2020.
