We need to implement a feed–in-tariff scheme for households/cooperatives to sell excess electricity back to the grid

The implementation of self-consumption is at early stages in many European countries. Financial schemes should be set up to favour self-energy consumption. This financial incentive could apply to both renewable energy production systems owned by individual households or third parties and self-consumption projects developed by green energy cooperatives. Excess electricity can be sold to grid to generate income and reduce electricity bills, thereby making more attractive self-consumption models. The temporary nature of the feed-in tariff is crucial to ensure the acceptance and the viability of this measure.
