Cooperative Local Energy TransitionsA Guide for Socially Just and Ecologically Sound Renewable Energy Self-Sufficiency – with an Emphasis on Bioenergy

Many municipalities and regions in Germany have the aim to provide themselves with renewable ener­gies (RE). To do this in a social-ecological way, meaning in a socially just and ecologically sound man­ner, different challenges need to be overcome. This brochure points out these challenges and presents possible solutions. Further, it supports regional actors in their decision making processes on their way to becoming RE self-sufficient. The target groups for this brochure are specifically visionaries, leaders, and decision makers in government, politics, and economics as well as representatives of citizens' initia­tives, NGOs, or the agricultural and forestry businesses.
