The research done in the SCCER CREST is organized in four Work Packages:
Addressing the regional and firm level of the energy transition. Research covers entrepreneurship, business model innovation, innovation dynamics and technology integration and the transition of regional energy systems.
Addressing the behavior of individuals to provide a better understanding of the decisions of energy consumers, of the determinants of energy consumption and of options for reducing energy demand.
Addressing the level of national policy and energy markets. Research covers the assessment of existing policies and market structures, recommendations for new policies and market designs and the exploration of pathways for the energy transition.
Addressing legal and political challenges in the governance of the Energy Strategy. Research will provide recommendations for overcoming situations in which the current governance impedes the transformation towards sustainable energy systems and in which more effective policies, regulations and processes could facilitate the transformation.
