Discover the SOGUI framework
Launching a social innovation project in the energy sector is a challenge: lack of funding, passivity in society, administrative and bureaucratic barriers, absence of legal framework, lack of access to information needed are just some of the obstacles.
SocialRES is a European Project aiming at closing non-technological research gaps that impede the widespread uptake of social innovation business and service models in the energy sector. In the framework of its research, project partners Estia, Tractebel, Go Parity and Adelphi produced these guidelines for successful social innovations in the energy sector. The main outcome is a guideline tool for social innovation initiation in the energy sector: The SOGUI framework.
This tool is meant to facilitate and support the implementation of energy-related projects, by defining the framework of the project. These guidelines are useful for renewable energy aggregators, cooperatives, energy communities, crowdfunding platforms, and other socially innovative organisations in the energy sector.
