In this doctoral thesis I delve into the reality of citizen-based low-carbon energy initiatives in the Dutch province of Fryslân and strive to understand their success. In doing so, I focus on the factors in their direct sphere of influence, as well as the dynamics involved when they interact with their localities and the wider range of governance actors. Regarding the latter, I specifically investigate how subnational governments and intermediary actors respond to the emergence of these grassroots initiatives.
