PEng: private engagement in the energy system
Article Type: News From: Management of Environmental Quality: An International Journal, Volume 21, Issue 5
A new research project, by IFZ Graz and SERI, is analysing and collaborating with two energy initiatives in Austria – the Ökoregion Kaindorf and the Ökostrombörse – to explore private engagement in the energy system. The project will first analyse why citizens engage in such initiatives (or why not) and how their engagement contributes to an energy-aware lifestyle. In the second part of the project, several activities (such as future workshops, focus groups, etc.) will be organised in order to promote energy aware lifestyles and to broaden the initiatives.
