On 20 January 2022 the Clean energy for EU islands secretariat organised a webinar about the Regulary Inventory. The Clean energy for EU islands Regulatory Inventory is a publicly accessible online database that includes the national legislation, regulation, and policy framework for the support of clean energy technologies, projects, and initiatives.
The inventory covers 15 Member States with inhabited islands (Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Greece, France, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden). In order to create this inventory, the secretariat collected data on currently applicable national legislation, regulation and policies which provide support for development of renewable energy, energy efficiency and community energy projects and initiatives, the relevant procedures, policies and authorisation bodies.
The webinar contained a short explanation of the process followed, as well as of the methodology used to bring together the inventory. The scope of the Regulatory Inventory was presented as a snapshot of the legislative and regulatory framework for support of clean energy technologies and projects on islands.
