Most of the newspaper or blog readers have not ever heard about the international contest at which may take part only renewable energy using local governments. It is obvious that any renewable energy source means an optimal alternative against traditional fuels only at regional or communal level.
At this level the conditions and limits can be planned and the consumption can be properly harmonized with the available capacity, this way the transportation/repartition does not mean undue extra costs. In most situations this system can be created by local work power and local enterprises and its operation means extra jobs for local people.
In 2014 every fourth village of Hungary participated at the Contest of Renewable Energy Sources. You can read more about the contest at http://www.energiaklub.hu/hir/a-telepulesek-vezetoi-hisznek-az-megujulo-eroforrasokban-onkormanyzati-sikerek-a-megujulo-energia.
