Science Impact Ireland
The ENTRUST project focuses on the social dimension of the energy system, moving beyond the 'energy as a commodity' paradigm. Developing the concept of energy citizenship, the project takes an intersectional approach to analysing the effects gender, age, and socioeconomic status have on transitioning to a low carbon energy system. It aims to: Broaden understanding of public perceptions and attitudes to energy related technologies; Ascertain current practices and attitudes to developing transition pathways to a low carbon economy; Analyse the significance of gender and its role in energy-related practices and attitudes; Directly engage with the public in the transformation process to a more efficient, low-carbon energy system; Develop methods and tools to stimulate public dialogue on energy policy and innovation at a European level.
