What activities “count” as social innovations in energy transitions? How do they work? What roles do public institutions play in such initiatives? How can small-scale energy projects compete with big players in the energy sector?
The SONNET webinar series will explore these and many more questions. The series will engage researchers, local governments, sister projects, leaders of social innovation initiatives, and more.
All interested persons are warmly welcome to join the discussions!
More information about the upcoming SONNET webinar will be coming soon!
