The question posed in this article is whether there are territorial and urban contexts that are favourable to developing decentralised energy management and to understand their specific characteristics. The empirical study is conducted on 20 European cities that are engaged in energy transition. Firstly, this work reveals the different strategies implemented by these localities in terms of energy production, distribution and consumption. It then analyses the relationships between energy management methods and the socio-demographic, economic, geographic and town-planning characteristics of the cities studied. The article thus highlights which city models are more or less favourable to certain types of local energy actions and projects.
