New roles for citizens in local and regional energy systems; A comparison of Norway and the Netherlands

Project: Research



In this project I will examine models of local energy production and management, comparing the nine Zero emission neighbourhoods, as developed and monitored by the ZEN research centre at NTNU with the Friesian towns that are part of a new research project in the Netherlands (see above). Secondly, connected to this empirical part, I aim to examine and compare the policies and opportunities for prosumers and small and/ or cooperative businesses in Norway and The Netherlands.
