The long-awaited Clean Energy Package aims at better engaging consumers in the energy transition through a raft of new legislative proposals and initiatives covering retail and wholesale market functioning. Consumers across the EU will in the future have a better choice of supply, access to reliable energy price comparison tools and the possibility to produce and sell their own electricity. Increased transparency and better regulation give more opportunities for civil society to become more involved in the energy system and respond to price signals.
