Presentation Energy sharing: A study of the potential

Konferenz: Berliner ENERGIETAGE - Geteilter Strom, doppelter Gewinn
Event by: Berliner ENERGIETAGE
14.09.22 - 15.09.22, Online Meeting

The concept of energy sharing is a promising approach to support the further spread of renewable energies through increased acceptance: Citizens can co-finance wind or solar power plants in their neighborhood and purchase the electricity produced themselves. However, the existing regulatory framework does currently not provide for this.
During the event, the results of a study on the potential of energy sharing, commissioned by the Bündnis Bürgerenergie (BBEn), were presented. With a favorable design, energy sharing has a number of positive effects:

  •     90 % of households can be supplied with discounted energy sharing electricity.
  •     35 % percent of expansion targets till 2030 could be met through energy sharing alone
  •     Private investments of 6.5-12.8 billion euros.
  •     The electricity grids will be relieved
