SOCIAL INNOVATION IN ENERGY TRANSITIONS: Co-creating a rich understanding of the diversity, processes, contributions, success and future potentials of social innovation in the energy sector

Project description

Social innovation in energy transitions

SONNET brings diverse groups together to make sense of how social innovation can bring about more sustainable energy systems in Europe. How has social innovation contributed to making our energy sources, use, and production cleaner? How can social change help reduce our carbon footprint in the future? Six cities and six research institutions in Europe are using techniques – like ‘City Labs’, case studies, citizen surveys and more – to co-create knowledge and answer these questions. By bringing together designated academic and local government partners, expertise of all kinds will come together to co-create knowledge and solutions. In addition to its research, SONNET is hosting several regional, national, and European events to spread knowledge on social innovation and the energy transition.
