MApping the contextual Conditions of REsilient Decentralized Energy Systems - MACREDES

MACREDES studies factors influencing the promotion and success of decentralised energy systems and on the transition from a conventional to a more sustainable energy system. We will study technological, economic, social and spatial characteristics of decentralised energy systems in an integrated way. MACREDES is funded by the EDGaR (Energy Delta Gas Research) program.
