Energy communities, where citizens, businesses, and local administrations team up to produce energy for self-consumption but also sell it, are the right solution for the Western Balkans to speed up decarbonization and make the energy transition sustainable. The current energy crisis and soaring energy prices are only adding to the significance of energy communities since they can also provide energy security for consumers – a steady supply at affordable prices. Governments should create a regulatory framework to enable energy communities to be established and then leave everything else to local actors, primarily local governments, according to speakers at the conference Citizen Energy Communities/Renewable Energy Communities. These are the main messages from the more than 80 participants present at the venue in Sarajevo.
