The EnerKey Module 2 – Stakeholders and Socio-Economic Drivers mainly addresses the non-technical aspects of the decision and implementation process. Policy options are both investigated and actively supported.
An abstract with an detailed concept summary you will find here.
Basically the module attends the following tasks:
This module contributes to the integration of all modules within the EnerKey project and is strongly interlinked with the Integrated Modeling Module 1, which will develop long-term energy scenarios for the Gauteng region. It will explicitly also address “non-technical” issues like important socio-political, socio-cultural as well as socio-economic guidelines of South Africa, e.g. “poverty alleviation” and “black empowerment”, “equity” and “unity” as well as “economic growth” to ensure that they will receive an adequate attention within energy planning and climate change activities promoted within EnerKey.
The Module 2 Stakeholders and Drivers largely contributes to showcase a successful example of an integrated long-term energy and climate planning for a fast growing Megacity region. Stakeholder processes will be initiated and facilitated. It is furthermore the aim of this module to pass on the gained process-knowledge to the South African partners. Thus setting the basis for self-sustaining, effective, cross-institutional energy planning processes in the Gauteng region, will contribute substantially to a more sustainable development and the mitigation of CO2 emissions.
As a central working instrument within this module as local supporting group, the "EnerKey Long-term Perspective Group" (ELPG) is set up. This group serves to gather and assess information as part of the research process. And it simultaneously serves to quickly disseminate preliminary results to key stakeholders. Furthermore it serves to incorporate views and wishes of South African key stakeholders into the project in a participatory manner. Thus it ensures that research questions are framed according to the local demand. One aim of this participatory approach is to create ownership of the EnerKey research results among Gauteng's energy stakeholders - which is a prerequisite that the outcomes of EnerKey will actually be implemented.
Further information on the ELPG such as minutes of meetings, presentations you will find here.
Beyond the Module 2 refers to a series of thematic workshops and events. Minutes and presentations you will find here.
