The term ‘energy sharing’ was introduced for the first time in EU energy legislation under the Clean Energy for All Europeans package. In particular, energy communi-ties need to be allowed to share energy within the community. while it seems that the term has been deliberately introduced as a new activity, the directives provide little guidance about what it exactly entails. On the basis of a brief literature review on the concept ‘sharing’ and the overall framework and objectives of the directives, this contribution explores what energy sharing could mean and whether and how it could include a ‘caring’ component for an inclusive energy transition.
