Community-based Renewable Energy Models. Analysis of existing participation models and best practices for community-based renewable energy deployment in Germany and internationally

More than 40% of installed RE capacity in Germany is in the hand of citizens. The purpose of this study was to provide input on existing types of participation models in Germany and internationally, in order to derive at lessons learned for Thailand and other emerging economies to make them more aware of the benefits of local energy production. The GIZ Thailand will use the study to set up local renewable energy projects and share the findings with other institutions in emerging economies.
