Abstract

Sustainable energy consumption depends on the methods to use energy by the public and the governance of energy consumption based on certain norms and regulations. Yet it has been widely overlooked that the reach of energy consumption to a wider population, who are economically in a disadvantageous position, may also play a key role. This study takes attention to the democratisation of sustainable energy consumption by highlighting the role of state institutions and state-private cooperation. This study suggests that the misuse of state power and corruption manifested in the state-private cooperation pose serious risks to the democratisation of sustainable energy consumption and increases social harm for the disadvantageous communities in society.
