Luxembourg releases draft legislation for captive consumption of solar energy

The Luxembourg government has released a draft legislation for self-consumption from solar energy. The new provisions are aimed at changing the law regulating the energy system and enabling prosumers to play an active role in Luxembourg’s future energy landscape. According to the new rules, owners of solar power generators, as well as communities running collective PV projects, will be allowed to consume part of the produced power, and sell the excess power to the grid. Further, the self-consumed power will be exempted from grid fees. Meanwhile, the government has launched a tender for the installation of PV projects exceeding 500 kW. Private citizens and enterprises can participate in the tender.
