How municipalities can drive a people powered energy transition

The energy transition is one of the biggest opportunities our generation has been given. But who owns the power? Who controls the governance? And are they accountable to local citizens? This session explores municipal and communities, examples from Europe, South Africa and Latin America where local authorities and citizen groups have used the energy transition as a way to build local democratic power, resource their communities and reduce their emissions. We don’t need big oil companies to lead the transition, we need public power with people – not profit – at its heart to kick off the next generation of energy production and supply.
