IEA UsersTCP Empowering all: Gender in policy and implementation for achieving transitions to sustainable energy (Working period 2022-2024)
Previous work in the Task suggests that countries with higher income levels pay little attention to inclusive energy (-technology) use and its implications. Therefore, this project focuses on obtaining more data on the gender aspects of energy users through a survey, developing guidelines on inclusive technology development, and communicating the overall research results with interested stakeholders.
IEA UsersTCP SLA 2.0: Inclusive and Community-Oriented Approaches to a Social License to Automate (Working period 2022-2024)
The energy transition is critical in solving the climate crisis. Automated demand side management has great potential in this process but struggles with social acceptance. In SLA2.0, the role of gender and diversity factors will be investigated with regards to flexibility and engagement and the contribution potential of energy communities to a social license to automate will be explored. Results will provide guidance for flexibility profile identification and stakeholder-specific recommendations.
Automation applications for load shifting, also in the homes of end customers, will play an important role in the current transformation process of the energy system. The project “Social License to Automate” examined the question, which aspects are important for the success of these innovations and technologies, and under which circumstances end users are prepared to accept or reject energy-related automation processes.
IEA UsersTCP: “Empowering all” Gender in policy and implementation for achieving transitions to sustainable energy (Working period 2020-2022)
The Annex supports the design of a more efficient and inclusive energy system by integrating gender perspectives. Based on case studies and best practice examples, country-specific recommendations for inclusive energy policies are being elaborated.
The UsersTCP provides evidence from socio-technical research on the design, social acceptance and usability of clean energy technologies. Users play a central role within energy systems. The findings will support political decisions for a clean, efficient and safe energy system.
