The 8 winning local administrations of the Renewable Energy League were rewarded during the 15th edition of the Assises de l’Energie (the Energy Assizes) on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 in Dunkerque. Find out who is effectively leading the game of territorial energy transition!

The winners will be rewarded on the basis of a main indicator of the energy autonomy in the territory (% of energy consumption covered by local renewable energy), combined with a recognition of the energy package and the political commitment of the local administration.

The data on renewable energy for 900 local administrations, among which the larger towns and urban areas, have been taken into account in establishing the 2014 classification.

The 2014 champions in each category (according to energy use) and each division (according to the size of the town) are:
