Approaches to participation in local energy-planning: Examples from a swedish region
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the 2010 ERSCP-EMSU Conference In Delft & Cape Town October 25-29, 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
This paper presents a study in which ten small local authorities were asked how they would like to approach local stakeholders in their energy-planning. Based on the answers this paper discusses participation in an energy-planning context and shows how goals and methods may differ according to the different target groups the local authorities wish to reach. The different approaches to stakeholder participation are then categorised into four categories – participation as capacity building, participation as a way to create acceptance, participation as a way to change behaviour and participation as partnership building – and discussed in relation to participation literature.
