Social Innovation in Energy: four projects shine a light on the path forward
In April 2022, SocialRES came together with three of its sister projects to convene a conference on the social drivers of the energy transition.
This two-day online conference explored social innovation and collective action as key drivers of just and sustainable energy transitions, drawing on and presenting nearly three years of work and research that the co-organisers have spearheaded.
The event included a high-level policy dialogue with European leaders, structured around a jointly-developed Policy Brief with a set of recommendations for EU policy makers on how to better harness and support social innovation for energy transitions.
You can download the Policy Brief in our Resources section. It has been assembled as the result of an intensive co-creation process amongst representatives from the SONNET, SocialRES, COMETS and NEWCOMERS projects.
The Policy Brief is succinct, readable, and makes use of tables and figures to make content as useable and understandable as possible.
