Interesting thesis on Zotero: "A quantitative analysis of the potential of Transition Towns for greenhouse gas reduction in Spain" "In this study, 41 sustainable energy initiatives in Spain were researched and catalogued, contributing to an online platform that details such cases in all countries across Europe. From these, an in-depth analysis was conducted to assess the impact of Transition Towns (TTs) in a novel, quantitative way. This study seeks to understand what changes are happening within TTs, what their current impact is, and what their potential for diffusion could imply. Through a combination of on-site interviews and mathematical calculations, the greenhouse gas emissions avoided through Transition programs were assessed. Many Spanish Transition Towns are very young and small, so the impact on a local level was not high. However, if extrapolated to nationwide participation in the Transition movement, it could lower annual Spanish emissions by 4%." [1]
