Stakeholder demands and regulatory framework for community energy storage with a focus on Germany

Swantje Gährs and Jan Knoefel

Energy Policy, 2020, vol. 144, issue C

Abstract: Community energy storage (CES) can provide for a variety of services and offers the possibility of combining individual needs with grid services. Hence, CES has the potential to play an important role in the energy transition, especially for a sustainable urban energy supply. In Germany, however, progress in this field has been slow due to a complex regulatory framework and limited transdisciplinary research.
