Database of driving factors in social innovations in the energy sector

Guidelines - 28 Feb 2020

The aim of this report is to define the main factors that drive citizens, investors and other stakeholders to contribute in social innovation schemes for clean-energy transition. This is done by a literature review of qualitative and quantitative elements (section “State of the Art”), the categorisation of motivations for social innovation in the energy sector (section “classification for driving factors in social innovations in the energy sector“) and the results of the first survey realised within the SocialRES project with the managers of aggregators, cooperatives, and crowdfunding platforms (section “Results of the survey”). The main result is a database of driving factors that will be used to analyse innovative business models as well as in the survey with participants of social innovations in the energy sector.
