What is energy citizenship and how does it change the way we think about energy? How can we co-create sustainable energy solutions with local communities and citizens? How can we mainstream energy communities to speed up energy transition? EU Member states have an obligation to create an enabling environment for active citizen involvement in the energy transition.
This extends beyond democratic participation and access to energy, to also include co-creation and ownership of different forms of production and consumption. This has resulted in the emergence of innovative practices for local authorities and community leaders to engage with energy citizens.
