Resumé

Energy savings are generally viewed as an effective way to cut GHG emissions, as there are huge potentials for improvements because of several barriers and constraining factors for implementing otherwise profitable solutions. Several different polity tools have been applied to overcome these barriers including local political programmes aiming at facilitating a change in the local companies. This paper draw on empirical data from one such local programme, the Carbon 20, carried out by 7 Danish municipalities.
The paper present discussions in respect to the overall role and approach of the local authorities, evaluating the specific concept applied, highlighting the specific barriers and constraints encountered during the project so far, as well as how the local authorities can help the companies overcome these.
With this paper, the author intent to provide some inspiration for other local authorities (and other intermediates in the energy saving area) for how they can interact with companies to assist them overcome different barriers and constrains taking a role and approach as a “reflective dialogue partner”.
