Rural communities with sufficient resources (forest, wind, agricultural waste, etc.) and space will be able to produce energy, as they already produce food, and “export” their surpluses (electricity, biogas, wood, etc.) to energy intensive urban areas with insufficient resources to meet all their needs.

At European level, this revolution and the role cities play in it is mostly confined to side programmes and dedicated initiatives such as the Covenant of Mayors or the Urban Agenda. While it is important that cities are supported through targeted mechanisms to advance the energy transition, it is also crucial that their own priorities and contributions find an echo in existing, high stake EU policies such as the strategic plan of building an Energy Union.
