"L’espressione comunità energetica è ancora poco nota. In Italia è entrata nel linguaggio ufficiale solo nel dicembre 2020, quando il parlamento ha approvato un emendamento al decreto cosiddetto Milleproroghe che riconosce le associazioni di produttori-consumatori di energia rinnovabile, come previsto da una direttiva europea del dicembre 2018: singoli cittadini, enti locali o piccole aziende e cooperative possono associarsi e diventare comproprietari di impianti di energia rinnovabile “di vicinato”
