Smart-BEEjS

International project

Smart-BEEjS is a project aiming to train 15 PhD researchers to design transformational pathways that tackle energy poverty and justice, providing evidence and using the decentralised nature of ‘Positive Energy Districts’ and ‘Networks of Districts’ as the central platform of transformation whilst recognising the economic, social and environmental challenges faced. Tackling the issue of energy injustice and poverty is an essential pillar for contributing to the decarbonisation of our economies without leaving large parts of the population behind.

Main beneficiaries: the energy poor, low income consumers and policymakers.
