The BestRES project developed 13 Business Models to facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources into the energy market by aggregating distributed generation and combining it with demand side management and energy storage. However, these Business Models encounter various barriers on their way, be it of economic, technical or legal nature.
The paper “The impact of the CE4AE-Package on legal and regulatory problems for aggregators, encountered in the BestRES project” analyses the legal and regulatory barriers already identified at an early stage of the project in light of the new provisions of the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package (CE4AE), which are likely to reduce or even eliminate said barriers.
The document includes BestRES recommendations for policy makers to ease the transition to cleaner sourses of energy.
