This book offers a comprehensive and detailed overview of successful renewable energy projects in the European Union. After the decision of several European governments to change energy policies in favor of renewable energy sources, the number of nuclear power plants as well as overall coal production have decreased significantly already. Conrad Kunze and SOren Becker present recent energy projects that have successfully managed the change towards sustainable energy while functioning within local economies and adhering to the principles of participation, collective property, and ecologic awareness.Using a selection of 15 examples, the authors showcase the already existing parallel universe of 'small alternatives' and argue that, if used properly, renewable energy projects can not only lead the way in the fight against climate change but facilitate societal change on an even larger scale.
