(1) There is no universal definition for "Community Energy". Community energy are renewable energy projects, with local ownership and engagement, not limited to energy generation but that may also include distribution, storage, purchase, retail and demand-side management. These projects may have different ownership models such as public, private, cooperative and hybrid, through the engagement of municipalities, citizens and local businesses.
(2) The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) created a Coalition for Action which gathers a broad group of stakeholders, including ICLEI. This coalition aims to bolster public support for renewable energy and encourage dialogue between the public and the private sector on key opportunities in growing renewable energy markets worldwide.
