Zero-carbon energy transitions depend on the meaningful engagement of society. This is key to achieving urgent social transformations and decarbonisation in ways that are responsible, just and publicly accountable.

Forms of societal engagement with energy and climate change are rapidly multiplying - ranging from communication, behaviour change, deliberation and citizens’ assemblies through to activism, protest, digital participation and grassroots community action.

The Observatory for Societal Engagement with Energy (SEE) will develop new mapping approaches to generate openly accessible whole-system evidence about energy participation on an ongoing basis.

It will serve as a platform for stakeholder learning and exchange, and translate the social intelligence produced to help make zero-carbon energy transitions more just, responsible and responsive to society.
