Energy System Transition Through Stakeholder Activation, Education and Skills Development͟. provides mapping of Europe’s energy system (key actors & their intersections, technologies, markets, policies, innovations) and an in depth understanding of how human behaviour around energy is shaped by both technological systems and socio-demographic factors (esp. gender, age and socio-economic status).

Focuses on the social dimension of the energy system, moving beyond the ‘energy as a commodity’ paradigm. Developing the concept of energy citizenship, the project takes an intersectional approach to analysing the effects gender, age, and socioeconomic status have on transitioning to a low carbon energy system.

It aims to:

  1. Broaden understanding of public perceptions and attitudes to energy related technologies.
  2. Ascertain current practices and attitudes to developing transition pathways to a low carbon economy.
  3. Analyse the significance of gender and its role in energy-related practices and attitudes.
  4. Directly engage with the public in the transformation process to a more efficient, low-carbon energy system.
  5. Develop methods and tools to stimulate public dialogue on energy policy and innovation at a European level.
