An unpublished report on the assets of the territorial energy transition

A few days before the kick-off of the National Meetings on Energy and Rural Territories from September 23 to 25, 2020, Yannick Régnier, project manager at CLER, publishes "The territorial energy transition, creator of value(s) and engine of development".

The culmination of two years of work and ten years of links with territories in transition, this synthesis is based on concrete examples - the territories of the network TEPOS, pioneers of the transition.
Main lesson: the appropriation of energy issues is one of the levers of new value creation in the territories, of attractiveness and dynamism of rural areas. In the absence of a local energy policy, every euro spent on energy leaves the territory, impoverishing not only households, but also the entire local economic fabric deprived of this financial flow.
