Sustainable energy and climate strategies – lessons learned and potential for development (HEKSA)
The project is a cooperation with IEI/Environmental Technology and Management. The project runs between September 2011 - December 2012 and is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency.
This project is part of the research program within Sustainable Municipality project that is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency. Municipalities within the Sustainable Municipality project are required to adopt climate and energy strategies to clarify, prioritise and suggest measures connected to their fields of responsibility and activity. In order for municipalities to be prepared for future challenges regarding strategic energy issues, capacity building is necessary. One important field is the increasing demand for collaboration and networking with other societal actors. This project contributes to capacity building from a policy theoretical perspective by developing support that facilitates local authorities’ cooperation with other actors in relation to their energy strategies. This is valuable for the municipalities’ future efforts towards ambitious energy objectives. The project runs from September 2010 until December 2012.

Technology and Social Change is an interdisciplinary research unit focusing on how social actors create and use technology, and how technical change is woven together with cultural patterns, daily life, politics, energy systems, learning, and the economy in history and society.
The objective for TEMA - The Department of Thematic Studies is to pursue excellent research and education at undergraduate and advanced levels relevant to society. Tema aims to provide a major impetus in career development for both future researchers and those who have just entered the field of research
