SocialRES

 Knowledge of social energy alternatives

Description

The SocialRES Project aims to close non-technological research gaps that impede the widespread uptake of social innovation business and service models in the European energy sector. By creating a better understanding of socio-economic, socio-cultural, socio-political and gender factors, a more evidence-based regulatory, investment and policy landscape will be enabled for decision makers. SocialRES’ participatory approach establishes a solid knowledge based on the social acceptability of the energy transition, facilitating sustainable, replicable and participative governance structures for the energy system.

Objectives

  • Comparative analysis of success potential, addressing the socio-economic dynamics and energy behavior of social innovations.
  • Collaborative potential of social innovations for the development of new business models and services through mutual learning activities.
  • Decision-making processes through conclusive recommendations for various actors from the political and private sector and civil society.

Expected results

  • Provide a better understanding of socioeconomic, gender, sociocultural, and socio-political factors and their interrelations with technological, regulatory, and investment aspects.
  • Provide recommendations to create a more favorable legal and regulatory framework for social innovation.
  • Unleashing the potential of social innovation to ensure a more secure, sustainable and affordable energy system.

The proliferation of renewable energies and the electric charges that operates with continuous current originates a growing interest in electric grids that operates with continuous current. This is due to the higher efficiency, security, flexibility and feasability that grids have than those ones that operates with alternate current.
