Citizen Energy Berlin (BürgerEnergie Berlin eG)

Citizen Energy Berlin is raising capital by member shares to buy the city's energy grid when it goes on sale in 2014. It has recruited around 1,000 members, each paying a minimum of €500 (£430) a share. They have built a movement aimed at putting the city grid under citizens' control to supply energy from renewable suppliers towards helping Germany's transition to renewable energy 'energiewende'.
