ENABLE.EU – Enabling the Energy Union has just released their third newsletter. Here you can read all about the final conference, including the sessions on the drivers of electricity consumption and consumer views on reducing energy use. You can also learn more about the main takeaways of the project and the policy recommendations, and watch a video that shows us what energy use could be like in 2040. Finally, you can learn more about current and future energy use with our sister projects, and by visiting our new website where you can choose between two energy futures!

The Energy Union Framework Strategy laid out on 25 February 2015 has embraced a citizens-oriented energy transition based on a low-carbon transformation of the energy system. The success of the energy transition pillar in the Energy Union will hinge upon the social acceptability of the necessary reforms and on the public engagement in conceptualizing, planning, and implementing low carbon energy transitions. The ENABLE.EU project will aim to define the key determinants of individual and collective energy choices in three key consumption areas – transportation, heating & cooling, and electricity – and in the shift to prosumption (users-led initiatives of decentralised energy production and trade). The project will also investigate the interrelations between individual and collective energy choices and their impact on regulatory, technological and investment decisions. The analysis will be based on national household and business surveys in 11 countries, as well as research-area-based comparative case studies.
The ENABLE.EU project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement 727524.
