Local Energy Governance Rating System Guideline

The Local Energy Governance Rating System (LEGRS) serves as toolbox for local governments to assess their own energy governance capabilities and to link up with international sustainable certifications. It is a framework designed to guide them in transitioning on three key fronts: industrial development, energy transition, and capacity building.

From 2020 to 2021, LEGRS has been building the guideline through in-depth interviews, reviewing the facilitating model for international sustainable city certification and initiatives, studying local energy transition best practices, and working with international experts for peer review. The initial framework of LEGRS was published in the 2021 Global Smart Solution Report (GSSR).
