Boom energetyki obywatelskiej w Niemczech

W latach 90. w modzie byla prywatyzacja sieci energetycznych, dzis w calych Niemczech przejmuja je firmy komunalne i spoldzielnie. W Hamburgu i Stuttgarcie odbeda sie jesienia referenda w tej sprawie, inicjatywa referendalna zawiazala sie takze w Berlinie.

(…)

Niemcy mawiaja, ze Energiewende zyje zaangazowaniem obywatelskim. Dobrze to rokuje temu obecnie najbardziej ambitnemu projektu transformacji energetycznej na swiecie. Bo Niemcom nie brakuje woli angazowania sie na rzecz wspolnego dobra, jakim jest czyste srodowisko, zwiazana z nim wysoka jakosc zycia, bezpieczenstwo energetyczne oraz transparentny i demokratyczny system energetyczny, ktory nie ogranicza dostepu najmniej zamoznym, a generowane zyski reinwestuje w tym systemie dla dobra jego uzytkownikow.
