At the EUSEW policy conference on 7 June 2018, during a session on “Learning from experience and involving energy-citizens; two ways of improving energy-related policymaking”, Thomas Pellerin-Carlin of the Jacques Delors Institute will present ENABLE.EU’s work on “Social and cultural drivers of energy choices: Enabling Europeans to become active energy citizens”
The session will also feature a debate centred around some key questions regarding the energy transition, such as:
- What is critical to make energy efficiency policies stronger?
- How can the analysis of results (including multiple benefits) in previous years help revising policies for future years?
- How can policy-makers facilitate the integration of the needs of citizens and communities in the energy transition?
Register for the conference by 25 May 2018.
The ENABLE.EU project, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement 727524, 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.
