Enhancing energy democracy
Energy democracy includes the process of switching from centralised to decentralised energy production and allowing for greater social participation. That transition will mark one of the most fundamental social, economic and technical changes in modern history. Focussing on the energy system of the future, the EU-funded SocialRES project aims to devise more effective ways of increasing social innovation, leading to greater social acceptability as well as more durable governance arrangements and socioeconomic benefits. SocialRES further aims to supplement the existing fragmented data on social innovations with new understandings from businesses, end users and stakeholders to provide a comprehensive evidence base for policy design. To achieve its goals, the project will employ innovative techniques.
