A growing number of regional and local communities in Europe aim towards �energy autonomy�. These communities try to cover their energy demand for electricity, heating and cooling to 100 % by renewable energies from local and regional sources. Is this approach also useful and viable for transport? Should the European institutions support such strategies? In this paper we will present and discuss modelling results for Liechtenstein as well as provide an overview of ongoing research project focusing on the cross-border region around Lake Constance.
