Funded by the Swedish Energy Agency, the project engages members of the public interested in the crucial problems of contemporary energy practices through creative, community-inspired experiments with alternative approaches to energy provision. This can include local farmers, growers and energy enthusiasts, but also anyone interested in collectively exploring what possible forms a regenerative energy practice might take.
Through a number of events, Energy and Agriculture Open Labs, podcast series (coming soon!), and free to replicate small-scale prototypes, we hope to collectively experiment with and share a range of regenerative energy practices, concepts and principles able to generate new and challenging perspectives on energy provision aimed at supporting socioecological transformation.
Regenerative Energy Communities is a 3 year long research project funded by the Swedish Energy Agency, as part of their program People, Energy Systems and Society (MESAM), and is a collaboration between Linnaeus University (Department of Design+Change), Linköping University (Department of Technology & Social Change) and Basel Academy of Art and Design FHNW (Institute Experimental Design and Media Cultures).
