The advent of global warming and climate crisis has put climate transition on the international agenda. The European Union has set issued guidelines for a 40 percent reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (relative to 1990 levels) by 2030, at the same time, the objectives of the future energy system is to make it a more sustainable one. Denmark has set the goal of a society completely free of fossil fuels by the year 2050 - with the energy system based on renewable energy technologies such as wind and biomass. When a conversion of a complete national -based energy system is to be implemented, it is essential that communities in the municipalities support the plan. In this project, we focus on the Danish island of Fejø, located in Smålandsfarvand off the north coast of Lolland. We will in this project describe how a local energy conversion in a small community can be developed and implemented so that the locals on Fejø, see the benefit of an energy transition and gets involved in the crucial stages in the development of an energy plan. We will describe the local energy system on Fejø based on their energy needs, we will then describe and analyze four types of renewable energy technologies on the basis of the case Fejø. This will then give us the basis upon which to formulate a plan for implementation, that will describe the transition from a local society based on fossil fuels, to a energysystem based on renewables, as well as a description on how to incorporate the local community and have them investing energy and resources into the project.
