The energy transition continues to have a local dimension that is very strong. Indeed, large parts of the infrastructure, investments and jobs related to the clean energy sector are deeply rooted in their respective regions. Similarly, opposition against clean energy projects can frequently also have an important local dimension, for example in the form of citizen backlash or regional regulatory hurdles.
An international team of researchers now took on to further analyze these interactions between the energy transition and its local or regional contexts. Published at Lavoisier, the book cites specific examples and compares overall trends between France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

The book's contributions on Germany were elaborated by EIFER, the Karlsruhe-based European Institute for Energy Research. The author of this blog also contributed to this work.
The book is currently available only in French language. If you are interested in publications in English or German, please feel free to reach out.
