WHAT ARE ENERGY COMMUNITIES?
Decree-Law 162/2019 establishes the legal regime applicable to self-consumption of renewable energy in energy communities:
- Renewable energy community (CER), a legal person constituted under the terms of the present decree-law, with or without profit, based on an open and voluntary adhesion of its members, partners or shareholders, which can be natural or legal persons, of a public or private nature, including, in particular, small and medium-sized companies or local authorities, which is independent from its members or partners, but effectively controlled by them, provided that and cumulatively:
- The members or participants are located in the vicinity of the renewable energy projects or carry out activities related to the renewable energy projects of the respective energy community. These projects are owned and developed by said legal person;
- The main objective of the legal person is to provide members, or locations where the community operates, environmental, economic and social benefits instead of financial profits.
