Newsletter 01/2019 - final update

We are delighted to announce that the RES LEGAL Europe database has been thoroughly revised and updated. As the project is terminated by 01/2019, this was the final update.

The database covers all relevant support schemes, grid issues and policies for renewable energy sources in three energy sectors – electricity, heating & cooling and transport – not only for all 28 EU Member States, but also for the EFTA Member States as well as some accession countries. You can access the updated information on the current legal and political framework for RES free of charge at:

Welcome to RES LEGAL Europe, the website on regulations on renewable energy generation ...

Here you will find information on the important legislation on the support schemes, grid issues and policies for energy from renewable sources covering all three energy sectors: electricity, heating & cooling and transport. The scope of this database covers all the EU 28 Member States, the EFTA Countries and the Members of the Energy Community. RES LEGAL Europe will help you gather, analyse and compare information on renewable energy policies. The website offers links to all relevant original legislation, is free of charge and is updated on a regular basis. 

Please note that the RES LEGAL Europe project was finalised end of 2018 and the database has not been updated since. Therefore, the RES LEGAL Europe website will be shut down at the end of 2021.

We are currently working on relaunch of our database and hope to be able to present you brand new information on policy frameworks for renewable energy sources in Europe, including support schemes, grid regulations, policies and much more in 2022.

For now, we would like to ask you to complete a short survey on our users’ profiles. It will take no longer than 3 minutes of your time to complete the survey.
