The case of five european cities: Ghent, Frederikshavn, Bordeaux-Métropole, Sevilla and Tallinn

This publication is relying on five examples of European cities,that are frontrunners in the local energy transition and which have put a number on their investment needs by 2050 in order to succeed in their transition. Through our case studies of the cities Ghent, Frederikshavn, Bordeaux-Métropole, Sevilla and Tallinn, all signatories of the Covenant of Mayors-Europe initiative, we have identified the local investment needs for the energy transition in different geographical, socio-economic and sectorial circumstances.

Guidelines for local and regional policy makers

Community energy can encompass a number of different aspects and activities. Attempts to define the concept have been made. by various organisations, which defines it as “the economic and operational participation and/or ownership by citizens or members of a defined community in a renewable energy project.”.

Unleashing the power of community renewable energy

Unleashing the power of community renewable energy

How the EU legislation can help to remove barriers to community and citizen renewable energy?

Community energy production in Europe has huge potential. A recent study found that half of EU citizens – including local communities, schools and hospitals – could be producing their own renewable electricity by 2050, meeting 45% of their energy demand.1 Now, building on new EU community and citizen energy rights, the potential must be fully unleashed, to put Europe on the path to the needed energy transformation.

Cities and regions on the 100% renewables road

Renewables Networking Platform

If we want to increase the number of renewable projects in Europe, we need to set up the right policy frameworks and to connect the right actors (policy-makers, citizens, companies, NGOs…) with each other. This is, what the Renewable Networking Platform project aims at, while monitoring the advances in renewable policies both at national and sub-national levels.
