Project

The involvement of citizens increases the acceptance of the energy transition. This aspect is analyzed in the research project ENGAGE: The project explores the potential of social innovations in the energy transition to enable a successful and inclusive transformation. ENGAGE aims to use and expand the participation potential of social innovations in the energy transition by facilitating citizens’ social or financial involvement in energy transition projects on the one hand and promoting the further development of new social innovation projects in this area on the other. For this purpose, the specially developed Energiewende-O-Mat will become Germany’s central contact point and interactive decision-making tool for interested citizens who want to get involved in an energy transition project based on their geographical, technological, and financial needs or social preferences.
