A new wave of energy platforms and communities are challenging the ideals and practice of European solidarity. Solidarity is a by-product of functioning markets, which naturally make citizens mutually interdependent. It is also a by-product of social rules or norms, the preferences citizens make about how they live, which in turn shape how markets function. However, these processes could change with the emergence of new platforms and energy communities, having both new rules and addressing new people, in the European energy world. This panel will ask how the European energy world should respond and what the changes mean for what the current European “XX-large” legislative package proposes.
