Abstract [en]

Using Urban Political Ecology (UPE) and Energy Democracy (ED) as the theoretical framework and semi-structured interviews as its main source, this study seeks to answer the following research questions: What are the arguments in favor of and against the remunicipalization of the Berlin electricity grid brought forth by actor groups involved in the debate? What are the different expectations and challenges regarding claims to ‘democratization’ in the context of the remunicipalization of the Berlin electricity grid? Advantages of remunicipalization are linked to the perception that municipal companies think beyond their immediate impact on network operations. Critics on the other hand stress that responsibilities of the network operator are very much focused on the particular area of secure electricity provision. Similarly, while some believe that more direct citizen control could secure that grid operations are common good-oriented, main challenges in democratizing grid operations are perceived to be linked to legitimacy and feasibility concerns. The results underline a repoliticization of the governance of the urban energy system with view to two aspects: First, on questions of public vs. private ownership in public service provision and second, on questions of far-reaching citizen control and participation in energy governance.
