SMARTEES was represented at the Energy Transition Week (NO)
The SMARTEES project was represented in Trondheim (Norway) on Wednesday, 27 March at a workshop on “Human behaviour and decisions in the energy transition”. The workshop was carried out as part of the Energy Transition Week hosted by the Energy Transition Initiative of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
The focus of this workshop was directed at understanding and highlighting the role of citizens in the energy transition. Two sessions comprised the workshop, with the first one consisting of back-to-back presentations by five ongoing EU projects, namely ENERGISE, ENABLE, ECHOES, PROSEU, and SMARTEES. Each of these projects explored the roles of citizens in energy use and the transition of energy systems, the impact of the transition on individuals, social groups, and societies, as well as the interaction between the transition and other societal developments. The presentations, the SMARTEES one led by Erica Löfström and Giuseppe Pellegrini Masini (NTNU), highlighted some of the key project findings concerning the above themes.
The morning presentations set the stage for the interactive session that took place during the afternoon. During this session, participants explored what it meant to be an active energy citizen. They furthermore sought to uncover and discuss key barriers faced by various consumers as well as the various solutions to overcome these.
During this event-filled week in Trondheim, SMARTEES was further represented by Christian Klöckner (NTNU) at the Energy Transition Conference. To learn more about the conference and to view the agenda, please click here.
