Since the turn of the millennium, many EU countries have introduced fixed feed-in tariffs and this has led to a macrocosm of alternatives. Through a number of examples the project aimed to show how and where such a transition is already working. The project financed by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation analysed democratic, ecological and social energy transition projects across the whole of Europe. It investigated their future possibilities and tried to establish a more concrete definition of the concept of ‘energy democracy’.
