Suggestion to get references: "The motivation for setting up a community energy initiative could be financial, a wish for greater levels of self-determination and independence (perhaps relating to an interest in energy sovereignty) or concerns over climate change and other environmental impacts of conventional energy production. However, engaging in community energy projects can have effects not anticipated by their founders. These communities may be playing an increasingly important role for society by raising awareness about renewable energy, contributing to a wider acceptance for the energy transition or raising levels of social capital, self-understanding and capacity for collective action within a community." "In addition, there are still significant technological, legal, economic and financial barriers to the further development of these communities." --Gil Penha-Lopes (talk) 21:37, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
