Abstract:The road towards sustainable development calls for system-wide transformations in sociotechnical systems of energy provision. There are a number of local renewable energy initiatives that emerged from all over Europe to take on this challenge. However, comparatively limited research has been done about the processes and conditions required for these initiatives to further develop and increase their influence on wider energy systems. For this reason, a comparative case-study analysis was conducted between to two local renewable energy initiatives: Lochem Energie in the Netherlands and Klimakommune Saerbeck in Germany, guided by the following research question: “How did change in the local energy systems of Lochem and Saerbeck come about, and what were the key drivers for change when comparing these cases?”
