Political power and renewable energy futures: A critical review

Topics: Energy,

This conceptual review explores the relationship between concentrated or distributed renewable energy and political power with the aim to assess tensions associated with an energy democracy agenda and draw out the implications for democratizing renewable energy development in practice. This study finds that energy democracy is closely tied to other social and environmental justice movements, and that more distributed renewable energy can provide an opportunity for democratic development.
