The Role of Public Participation in Energy Transitions provides a conceptual and empirical approach to stakeholder and citizen involvement in the ongoing energy transition conversation, focusing on projects surrounding energy conversion and efficiency, reducing energy demand, and using new forms of renewable energy sources. Sections review and contrast different approaches to citizen involvement, discuss the challenges of inclusive participation in complex energy policymaking, and provide conceptual foundations for the empirical case studies that constitute the second part of the book.

The book is a valuable resource for academics in the field of energy planning and policymaking, as well as practitioners in energy governance, energy and urban planners and participation specialists.

  • Explains both key concepts in public participation and involvement, along with empirical results gained in implementing these concepts
  • Links theoretical knowledge with conceptual and real-life applications in the energy sector
  • Instructs energy planners in how to improve planning and transformation processes by using inclusive governance methods
  • Contains insights from case studies in the fully transitioned German system that provide an empirical basis for action for energy policymakers worldwide

"This reviewer notes the strong role of the states in Germany, which may be typical of states or regions in other countries. In the USA for instance, such approaches could easily be used for renewable energy development in California and New York or British Columbia in Canada or possibly other regions in Europe. Certainly on the national level, Germany stands apart with their continued support for renewable energy development or "Energiewende as they call it. This book's blurb stated would be useful for practitioners and energy planners, but it also could be used as a supplemental textbook for energy policy or participatory methods courses. This reviewer wished he had such a book that he could have used for a public participation and environmental mediation course that he taught." --Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences
