Abstract:Local communities are one of the main cornerstones of sustainable development. They play a vital role in utilisation of national policy instruments and exhibit the largest influence on the energy use in the building and transport sectors. Sensible energy management can also positively enhance evolution of local sustainability features by incorporating concepts of local energy self-supply, decentralised energy production and circular economy. Positive economic and social impacts can be generated by adapting strategies and policies to the local environment while considering its endogenous potentials. By analysing the current status, identifying and quantifying potentials, and setting clear delimitation of responsibilities and legal constraints, local authorities can be helped to shape innovative local fiscal policies focused on intensification of use of local renewable energy sources and fostering of more efficient use of energy both in public and private sectors. Those revenues whose height and content can be determined by local authorities have a very different role in the budget already in 8 analysed Slovenian municipalities. They were quantified and used as an analytical basis for solution-oriented steps in the design of measures to adapt local fiscal policies to the increased use of renewable resources energy.
