Searching for sustainable energy projects engaging households

Are you Involved in a project that seeks to change the way people use and consume energy? Are you promoting energy efficiency and lower energy consumption in households? Whether you are an NGO, an energy agency, a business, or perhaps a group of neighbours or a social club, we would like to hear and learn from you!

We are a group of dedicated people, researchers and practitioners, who have joined forces in a new EU Horizon 2020 research project called ENERGISE and are looking to identify interesting initiatives for reducing energy consumption in households. Across Europe, there are a lot of people and organisations who take steps towards more sustainable, low-energy living. We would like to showcase and learn from as many as possible and need your help.

Share sustainable energy projects with us

Please send us your contact details and some basic information about your project or a project you know about (e.g. link to website, project brochure), and we will get back to you to learn more.
Please get in touch on info@energise-project.eu

Why is it good to participate?

If your project gets selected for our research overview, it may contribute to European policy-making on reducing energy consumption. It may also be shared across 30 European countries through a database we are creating on our website, and gain international recognition through our scientific reports, policy papers and media reports.

More information about the ENERGISE project

ENERGISE is an innovative pan-European research initiative to achieve a greater scientific understanding of the social and cultural influences on energy consumption. Funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme for three years (2016-2019), ENERGISE develops, tests and assesses options for a bottom-up transformation of energy use in households and communities across Europe. ENERGISE uses cutting edge research techniques (e.g. Living Labs) to directly observe existing energy cultures in a real-world setting and to test both household and community-level initiatives to reduce energy consumption. A comprehensive review and classification of household and community energy initiatives from 30 European countries provides the foundation for the development of two prototype ‘ENERGISE Living Labs’ designed to capture influences on individual and collective energy consumption. Data collection before, during and after the implementation of 16 Living Labs in 8 partner countries will be instrumental in contributing to the design and assessment of future energy consumption initiatives across Europe.

The ENERGISE consortium includes ten research partners (universities, research institutes, enterprises and NGOs) from Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Slovenia, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
