Since August 13 2008, any interested person may have free access to an online database containing, for the member states of the European Union of 27, important legal information on national measures currently in force in the field of renewable energy electrical (support systems and network access).

The regulations are detailed for each renewable technology (wind, PV, geothermal, biomass, hydraulic). The two categories "support" ("Förderung") and "access to the network" ("Netzzugang") are each subdivided into three sub-domains:
- Overview of the legal situation;
- Overview of support / network access;
- Detailed information on support instruments / on the regulation of access, use and development of the network.
