Abstract

As the energy transition unfolds, the interaction between consumers and energy systems is changing. Recent policy developments across Europe are redefining the role of citizens and consumers as efforts ramp up to deliver an increasingly decentralised, decarbonised, digital, and more democratic electricity system. We looked at the evolving policy framework stemming from the European Union, France, and the United Kingdom to obtain insights into how the role of consumers is being shaped for a low carbon energy future, identifying specific implications for island regions when available, which are of relevance for the France-Channel-England region. We offer up to date insights into these three territories by identifying strengths and weaknesses, and a set of policy recommendations aimed at supporting actions for consumer engagement.
