Local energy ownership in Europe - An exploratory study of local public initiatives in France, Germany and the United Kingdom Local energy ownership in Europe - An exploratory study of local public initiatives in France, Germany and the United Kingdom

The study aims to provide an initial exploratory analysis of the local energy ownership momentum in Europe by examining local initiatives in Germany, France and Great-Britain in order to illustrate the influence of national legal contexts. The study is divided in four sections:
- The first section aims to clarify and define the concepts used as regards local energy ownership;
- The second is an analysis of the reasons and motivations put forward to support bringing back the operational management of energy systems under local control;
- The third is a review of the main hurdles and risks faced by local authorities wanting to regain control of their energy systems and identifies potential solutions to overcome these obstacles;
- Finally, the last part sums up the main lessons learned and aims to open up avenues worth exploring to go further in developing a local public energy service in Europe.
