Jake’s PhD research focuses on the nature of community energy innovations and the journeys they undertake. As such it complements the meso level focus on ‘niches’ of the larger research project ‘Community Innovation for Sustainable Energy’ and develops temporal knowledge on how grassroots actors go about their innovations.
This project is analysing the contribution of organised civil society in the UK towards sustainability transitions in the socio- technical trajectories of food production and consumption. Specifically, the study aims to describe and explain the different innovative strategies adopted by civil society actors wishing to influence the direction of those trajectories.
This PhD research compares innovative community energy projects in Finland and the UK, identifies key support mechanisms or barriers for community energy development, and analyses how the projects fit the countries’ national energy policies
Jeppe’s PhD research focuses on how narratives can create cohesion around novel ideas and practices in sociotechnical niches, through an in-depth case study of the Dark Mountain Project, a cultural movement that emerged from a critique of the progress narrative of modern societies.
Richard’s PhD research focuses on the role that a community approach may play in facilitating efforts to tackle climate change. It aims to investigate the impacts and effects of using community as a means of engaging people with climate change as an issue.
