Local Authority Club
“The Third Industrial Revolution distributed energy model gives new protagonism to the local authorities because brings the energy plants in their range. No local authorities could have become a player in the second industrial revolution model based on sources like coal, uranium, oil. But every one local authority can be a player today, with solar technologies, energy conservation, hydrogen and smart grids based strategies”.
from the introductory speech of the ERRIN Smart Cities Conference in the framework of the European Sustainable Energy week, Brussels 10th of March 2010.
