This project will provide comprehensive understanding how Austrian bottom-up initiatives function and how institutions and processes can be reshaped to systematically tap the full potential of bottom-up initiatives for the transition towards a carbon neutral and adaptive society. This will be achieved by integrating empirical research with modelling and by reflecting the Austrian situation with experiences in Germany. The results will be crucial for optimizing the inclusion of bottom-up initiatives in an overall renewable energy strategy for Austria.
