The purpose of this paper is to show how one can achieve regional controllability for distributed systems. First, we give a definition and some properties of this new concept, then we concentrate on the determination of a control achieving regional controllability with minimum energy. A direct method is developed and is illustrated by a hyperbolic system with point control and a parabolic system with zone control. We also give an important remark that converts the problem into a constrained optimization one
