A typology of key drivers and barriers to citizen participation in CECs, many of which are common across EU member states.
This deliverable reports on work undertaken for Task 3.3 of work package 3 of the ACCEPT H2020 project and examines the governance and socio-political contexts that condition and structure current pathways to participation, particularly in terms of citizen energy community (CEC) formation. Applying a multi-level perspective, the authors analysed the barriers and drivers to development at a number of scales including the local/individual, regional, national, and EU levels, outlining how citizens are encouraged to, or indeed dissuaded from, participate in these types of energy transition pathways. From this comparative work, we were able to develop a typology of key drivers and barriers to citizen participation in CECs, many of which are common across member states. This is presented in Tables 1 and 2 below and is discussed in more detail in Section 5 of the report. This typology is now informing ongoing work in work package 3 and is contributing to preparatory work for work package 8.
