On 30 May 2019, K&I finalised the draft of the first Smartees policy brief titled ” Social Innovation in the Energy Transition in Action”. This policy brief is based on a Europe-wide study into communities that have been experimenting with some basic features of a real low-carbon society at a local level (cities, neighborhoods, islands) in the frame of the Smartees project. These communities differ concerning their location in Europe, the types of “technological” innovation (spanning from transitions in traffic to investment in insulation), their socio-economic and environmental context (with consequences for the behavior of the involved people), and their duration and “seniority” (spanning from experiences starting in the ’70s of the last century and experiences still at an early stage today).
