Several cities in the Netherlands have developed ambitious local climate change mitigation plans to become carbon neutral in the future, including measures for significantly increasing the amount of locally produced renewable energy. The paper describes the GIS-based interactive tool COLLAGE that allows stakeholders to negotiate together where to locate a pre-determined demand of renewable energy within their municipality. The COLLAGE tool is implemented for stakeholder workshops of Dalfsen municipality, Netherlands. The interactive mapping sessions were perceived useful for better understanding the scope of envisioned development of renewable energies.
