The international organization, which aims to extend the good practices of the EU’s internal energy market to southeastern Europe and the Black Sea region, has released new guidelines for the grid integration of distributed generation power generators.


The Energy Community Secretariat, an international organization run by the EU and the governments of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, and Ukraine – and which is responsible for transferring the good practices of the EU internal energy market to these eastern European countries – has issued New policy guidelines for the grid integration of prosumers.

According to the document, which provides recommendations and practical advice on how to implement self-consumption schemes across all of the aforementioned countries, requires all of them them to introduce a stable, transparent and comprehensive regulatory framework for prosumers, while enabling their respective power consumers to become more aware of and potential income related to distributed generation.
