There are no measures on energy sharing or energy communities in Denmark, as legislation does not currently support the sharing of RES between individuals. However, a scheme, which supports local citizen initiatives to secure loan guarantees for feasibility studies of RES plants, does exist in Denmark. Though, this does not extend to sharing energy or creating energy communities as the support no longer applies past the planning stages. On the other hand, a measure on net-metering allows for prosumers to pay a reduced charge on electricity produced from own solar panels or windmills and consumed within one hour.
Summary of regulations
- Net-metering – All electricity prosumers are exempted from paying an environmental charge on electricity that is produced from renewable sources and consumed within one hour.
