Social Innovation and Community Energy

The report presents a literature review with selected examples of social innovation, community energy and their combination in a variety of projects. As there is currently no “single prescription to success” of these projects, the focus of this study was to explore specific practices and the success and failure factors of community energy projects. The findings are further supported by interviews of 18 stakeholders interviewed in March 2016. The interviewed stakeholders’ organisations are based in Europe (namely Greece, Germany, UK, Denmark and Croatia) and ISABEL partners discussed with them specifically the key success factors, obstacles overcome as well as types of renewable energy and community energy models implemented in their region.
