• Understand the needs, goals, and preferences of the public 
  • Find out how the public can be engaged in the transition 
  • Identify how policy making can be adapted to integrate public preferences 


The content of the energy transition is mainly about technological feasibility, financial benefits, and regulations but too little about support, trust and behavior of citizens – even though these aspects are key in a transition like this. But how do you increase public support and gain trust? How can residents jointly contribute to the energy transition? How can needs, goals and preferences from the public be integrated in crucial decisions at early stages of change? That will be discussed today!
