|DESCRIPTION:||The energy transition entails not only the abandonment of fossil fuels and the transition to renewable energy sources, but also the decentralization and democratization of the energy system. Besides large power plants owned by state or large investors, the expansion of renewable sources, especially solar energy, also allows citizens to take an important role in the process of electricity production.
After a long wait, this spring Serbia adopted the Law on the Use of Renewable Energy Sources, which finally introduces the concepts of prosumer and energy communities (cooperatives) in our country. The law regulates the participation of citizens in this area, who are significantly interested in the possibility to become prosumers.
In this panel discussion you will learn how solar panels work, how can citizens become producers of electricity, what is the concept of producer-consumer, what are energy cooperatives and what is their experience in Serbia.
