The paper proposes a reflection on the relationship between the emerging Energy Communities (EC) and their potential commoning approaches considering energy production and distribution as urban commons. This means reflecting on the EC potential for democratisation and paying attention to the participatory dimension of citizens in a citizen science perspective. It also means questioning the governance of the urban commons to understand whether the implementation of new models can guarantee social justice and inclusion along with the production and distribution of energy. The authors analyse three different examples of EC adopting the framework of the City as a Commons, as an approach able to support communities in a collaborative transition towards a smart and just city in which the energy dimension can also be rethought in terms of citizen science. In the analysis, the features of what has been defined as a commons-oriented community science emerge and the paper closes with some reflections on the difficulties but also on possible policy recommendations for policy makers interested in enhancing the dissemination of EC according to commoning and co-governance approaches.

Abstract

The paper proposes a reflection on the relationship between the emerging Energy Communities (EC) and their potential commoning approaches considering energy production and distribution as urban commons. This means reflecting on the EC potential for democratisation and paying attention to the participatory dimension of citizens in a citizen science perspective. It also means questioning the governance of the urban commons to understand whether the implementation of new models can guarantee social justice and inclusion along with the production and distribution of energy. The authors analyse three different examples of EC adopting the framework of the City as a Commons, as an approach able to support communities in a collaborative transition towards a smart and just city in which the energy dimension can also be rethought in terms of citizen science. In the analysis, the features of what has been defined as a commons-oriented community science emerge and the paper closes with some reflections on the difficulties but also on possible policy recommendations for policy makers interested in enhancing the dissemination of EC according to commoning and co-governance approaches.
