Document summarising the research ethics guidelines specifically developed for case study research work in EnergyPROSPECTS.

File D1.5 

Lead: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) – M4

This deliverable describes the conceptual framework on energy citizenship. It will lay down the key definitions, theoretical underpinnings and social constructions of the required systematic energy citizenship understanding. The conceptual framework will disclose the diversity of more and less "active" energy citizenship forms, identifying the main distinctions brought forward in the state-of-the-art of social innovation and transitions, political science, sociology, energy studies, social psychology, geography and critical social theory. This also involves elaboration of different understandings of the energy systems that energy citizenship can refer to.

Lead: Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) – M6

This deliverable elaborates the fundamentals of the conceptual framework (D2.1) into a conceptual typology. The deliverable elaborates, systematises and operationalises the key conceptual distinctions into empirical observables and examples, analytical categories, and sensitising concepts for further empirical analyses (WP3–6) and for activities in dissemination (WPs 1 and 7). This second stage in conceptualization ensures that the conceptual framework provides sufficient foothold for the development of empirically grounded typologies, and for application throughout the project (analysis in thematic work packages, but also policy advice and dissemination activities).

Lead: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) – M11

This report integrates the proceedings of the four regional workshops in task 2.3. Apart from informing the further development and deepening of the conceptual energy citizenship typology (D2.2), the workshop proceedings will be communicated through a series of blogs on the EnergyPROSPECTS website.

File D2.3 

Lead: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) – M14

This deliverable contains the proceedings of the international expert workshop, communicated in concise form as a blog. The report draws out main conclusions, challenging analyses, validations and critiques on the EnergyPROSPECTS conceptualization as inputs for its consolidation.

Lead: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) – M28

This deliverable forms the concluding synthesis of WP2. Based on external feedback, conceptual advances and the empirical insights developed in WP3, WP4 and WP5, the deliverable provides empirically informed and conceptually refined insights into "active" energy citizenship, the associated broader range of citizenship, and the relevant empowerment processes and supportive conditions that shape it.

Lead: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) – M36

This deliverable presents a synthesis of the conceptual framework in the form of a working paper to be submitted (after minor refinements) to a high-ranked scientific journal (e.g. Environmental Innovation and Societal Transitions, Research Policy).

File D3.1 

Lead: Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) – M20

Document including the list and brief description of 500 energy citizenship cases catalogued in EnergyPROSPECTS. The document also provides the typologies developed, with the description of typology categories. The catalogue will also be made available as a searchable online database.

Lead: Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) – M14

Document including the methodology developed collaboratively in EnergyPROSPECTS for in-depth study of energy citizenship. The document will include the criteria used for selecting the cases for in-depth study, the list of cases selected for in-depth study as well as a copy of the data collection template.

Lead: GreenDependent Institute (GDI) – M14

The training package will provide an introduction to the methodology as well as describe it step by step for users of the methodology. It will also include instructions and tips for using the methodology.

Lead: GreenDependent Institute (GDI) – M32

This deliverable will be the summary or meta-analysis report of the 40 in-depth energy citizenship cases. In addition, it will include an Annex, consisting of the individual case study reports, each following the same template (and also published attached to the online energy citizenship map).

Lead: Universidade da Coruña (UDC) – M32

This deliverable will provide a visual tool for empowerment of citizens as energy citizens and a training workshop tool for initiatives and organisations to support empowered energy citizenship.

Lead: Universiteit Maastricht (UM) – M22

This deliverable includes a map of economic-transactional aspects of energy citizenship cases and conclusions about enhancing the positive impact of energy citizenship types.

Lead: Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) – M22

The report will present the detailed analysis of the EU context and explain the major political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal conditions that shape the emergence, manifestations and transformations of energy citizenship. The report will serve as the reference point for the energy citizenship as observed in different national and local contexts.

Lead: Applied Research and Communications Fund (ARC Fund) – M25

This deliverable will incorporate nine national analytical reports, explaining the political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal conditions, in which energy citizenship has developed in nine partner countries. This comprehensive report will juxtapose the national contexts against the common EU frame and outline the country-specific conditions that appear to either support or hinder the development of active energy citizenship.

Lead: Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) – M30

The report will identify the most viable business models, social innovation models and new forms of organisation appropriate for advancing energy citizenship in different conditions. The report will include strategies for upscaling energy citizenship in the 9 participating countries, aimed at businesses, policy-makers, energy citizenship practitioners and citizens belonging to different social groups.

Lead: Applied Research and Communications Fund (ARC Fund) – M32

The report will summarise the input and findings from the EU-wide online survey with 10 000 respondents, and the discussions at the 9 national citizen consultations, on which pro-active energy citizenship scenarios will be co-created.

Lead: Applied Research and Communications Fund (ARC Fund) – M35

The energy citizenship scenarios, co-created by citizens, will be further developed and finalised by experts, who will translate them into actionable policy-relevant prospective scenarios for further support and transformation of energy citizenship. Scenarios will be complemented by targeted recommendations for effective implementation of measures that enhance and strengthen energy citizenship at the EU, national and local level. Attention is given to the COVID-19 situation and Green Deal to make Europe’s economy sustainable, fair and inclusive.
