ENCLUDE: Energy Citizens for Inclusive Decarbonization 

LC-SC3-CC-1-2020 - Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) aspects of the Clean-Energy Transition

Partner | Jun 2021 – May 2024 | UCC Budget: €281,938 

UCC Principal Investigator:  Dr Niall Dunphy

Motivated by achieving an equitable and sustainable future and the fulfillment of individual potential, ENCLUDE will contribute to the upcoming transformation of energy use by:

  • Assembling, aligning and adapting disparate energy citizenship concepts for diverse communities of citizens and for different scales of policy making, lowering the barrier for action.
  • Operationalizing the energy citizenship concept at all scales of policy making for decarbonization.
  • Catalyzing a chain reaction of decarbonization actions across the EU.

ENCLUDE is dedicated not only to the co-creation of new knowledge with stakeholders about the emergence and consolidation of energy citizenship, but also to the uptake of this knowledge to mobilize action for decarbonization, taking into account the interests and struggles of diverse citizen groups, including communities, who are not usually invited or expected to participate in these civic processes.
