This research explores energy communities (EC) and their business models’ attributes. We develop a conceptual framework, which combines and extends the social, economic, environmental, and technological dimensions of value generation to include the legal dimension. The latter has been considered only implicitly in previous studies on this sector. Applying this framework to forty business cases of energy communities allows to identify six business model (BM) archetypes representative of ECs. This study can encourage and support new ventures in this sector to model their strategy and comply with the requirements.
