1) SCAN listener can talk to only RAC database instances
2) local listeners can talk to both RAC and ASM instances
3) SCAN and remote listeners are same, the do the same work

also,

as the name says, the local listener is only local to the node, but the SCAN listeners are global, that can talk to all the nodes local listeners.

SCAN listener (same as  remote listener) is new in Oracle 11g RAC. It is a cluster-wide listener that enables automatic load balancing by connecting to the local listener of the least loaded node.

Before 11g each client had to know all the node listeners of a RAC cluster to define client-side load balancing...
