Hybrid seminar: Net Metering Scheme for Solar Energy: How Are Costs and Benefits Distributed Between Households With and Without Solar Panels?
On Thursday January 11th, 2024, Carlotta Masciandaro (RUG) will give a presentation titled: "Net Metering Scheme for Solar Energy: How Are Costs and Benefits Distributed Between Households With and Without Solar Panels?." To attend this seminar, please send an e-mail to Simone Pailer (S.Pailer@cpb.nl). You will be registered at the reception or will receive a Webex invitation via Outlook.
We find that the electricity bill increases for non-PV households and decreases for PV households, with implications for energy poverty. We observe that the main driving force of this inequality is the energy tax increase. The impact of net metering on retail and grid costs is modest. We also observe that a stronger merit order effect leads to a more equally distributed retail cost. As the share of PV households increases, the increase in the electricity bill for non-PV households worsens but the decrease in the electricity bill for PV households becomes smaller.
