Abstract

We analyze the literature regarding community energy. We investigate the
appearance of studies in the literature and the geographical orientation of the case studies, as well as the actual journals where the articles are published. We relate the articles to the theoretical approaches that are being employed. We analyze keywords used by the authors in their study of community energy and reflect on the country specifics of the case studies. We conclude that the study of community energy is still in its infancy as there is little commonality in the terminology and key concepts used.
Further, we conclude that the theoretical underpinnings of studying community energy are in progress.
