4.Inventing new local governance

How can we make stakeholders share the construction of a common vision and the desire to jointly engage in the energy transition? How can we reinforce collective dynamics? How can we encourage decision-makers and citizens to change their habits? How can we invent new social practices?

Proposals to give dynamic to creativity and involve local stakeholders and citizens:

4.1. Create interface capacities between public authorities and the civil society

  • Grenoble Alpes Métropole (FR),
  • Almada (PT),
  • Brasov (RO).

4.2. Establish cross departmental links to avoid silo mentality

  • Mulhouse Alsace Agglomération (FR),
  • Barcelona (ES),
  • Greater Lyon (FR).

4.3. Prove that it works and create a snowball effect

  • Besançon (FR) & Freiburg (DE),
  • Brussels (BE).

4.4. Give public visibility to motivated players and citizens

  • Rennes Métropole (FR),
  • Pamplona (ES).

4.5. Raise opportunities for experimenting new practices to encourage their dissemination

  • Tübingen (DE),
  • Transition Towns Movement.

4.6 Make arts and culture part of the energy transition process

  • Helsinki (FI),
  • London (GB).


4.7 Use town twinning as a springboard for energy transition

  • Malmö, Sweden & Tangshan, China

1. Empowering local actors

30 Energy Cities’ proposals for the energy transition of cities and towns 30 Energy Cities’ proposals for the energy transition of cities and towns

In 2012, Energy Cities initiated a process aimed at making and debating proposals for accelerating the energy transition
of European cities and towns. These proposals are based on
innovative approaches, new ideas and groundbreaking practices. They provide practical answers and link today’s action to the long-term vision of a low energy city with a high quality of life for all.
