Abstract

This chapter deals with the importance and progress of renewable energy in Europe following three paths. First, the chapter investigates renewable energy in the frame of the so-called anticipatory experiences (AEs) of energy transition, ie, some case studies at the local level where the transition towards a low-carbon society (or, at least, some of its features) was already implemented; second, it illustrates some national experiences with renewable energy, taking into account two important European countries - Germany and Italy - both ascribing a considerable importance to renewable energy albeit with some different choices; third, in a transversal approach it addresses the lessons learned from a decade's worth of European Union (EU) energy transition efforts, highlighting how climate change mitigation strategies, energy costs and market-oriented policies will create a new set of implications for EU energy security.
