The GRETA project (May 2021 - October 2023) aims to improve understanding on the conditions and barriers for energy citizenship emergence. Energy citizenship has come to represent a form of active participation within energy systems that ultimately supports local and global decarbonisation goals. It can manifest in many different ways, such as individual homeowners choosing renewable energy solutions or electric vehicles, participation in energy communities, or advocating for climate change.
Through a multinational survey and six participatory case studies, GRETA develops frameworks and models aimed to reveal what factors affect energy citizenship. These are utilized within case studies to identify problems, frame solutions and reach consensus on roadmaps for change, formalized through Energy Citizenship Contracts. Findings throughout the project will be utilized to inform and encourage policymakers to advocate energy citizenship.
Project outputs, including e.g. anonymized survey data, will be made available beyond the project via this Zenodo community.
