Understanding the mechanisms that link the energy transition to a boost of the economy on the ground is indispensable to guide local energy transition policies more efficiently. Objective evidence of economic results is required, as is a better understanding of economic analysis methods, in order to equip local and regional authorities with the tools needed to demonstrate the benefits for all local players.
In this three-part study including six case studies from Europe and the United States, Energy Cities illustrates numerous socio-economic aspects of the energy transition and confirms its local economic benefits providing facts and figures.
First part – Potential and opportunities of green growth
