About this book
This book addresses energy transition in cities, from fossil to renewable energy sources, by proposing citizens’ financial participation (ownership) in renewable energies, including consumer stock ownership plans (CSOP).
The editor deals with financial, organisational, legal and social conditions of a new system of decentralised energy production co-owned by consumers of energy and presents concrete methods and measures to explain this model. This approach is completed by an overview of the actual framework and experiences in different countries. The editor focuses on distributed energy and financial participation, rooted in economic theory, as a way forward towards achieving a low carbon society.
