The Portuguese Stakeholder Desk

In Portugal, the project focuses on the Norte Region as the target-region. However, as most of the regulatory and legal framework for RECs is developed at national level, national stakeholders and actors from other regions are also involved in the project activities. The technological focus of the desk is on PV and integrated community solutions, as RECs are mostly seen as potential contributors for PV penetration.

There are already some cases of collective investment in PV projects, where individuals gathered and invested in a common generation site. Nonetheless, the majority of existing projects still lack a shared management of energy generation and use, and a concrete active participation of the community in the energy system. The model of community energy is still not particularly popular in Portugal, and more specifically in the Norte Region, given a lack of credibility and the number of legislative and technical barriers to their implementation.

The Stakeholder Desk’s main goal is to promote an informal dialogue with the different market actors and stakeholders. The desk is composed of 35 entities, covering a large spectrum of stakeholders from the local, regional and national levels.  The desk includes amongst others research organizations, public authorities and policy makers, community energy initiatives and cooperatives, energy system operators, energy and innovation agencies and utilities.
