Energy transition is lagging behind expectation despite highly advanced technologies. 


Energy co-innovation

To ensure energy transition, innovation in the energy sector must tackle complex multilevel and often controversial issues. A more systemic and collaborative approach to innovation includes understanding the people involved in creating and using technologies, and the social and political norms through which they interact.  Co-creation addresses systemic challenges, involving and engaging multiple stakeholders using creative methods to foster innovation.  


Municipalities act as mediators in the innovation process. They can promote energy innovation by adopting a multi-stakeholder approach, involving all relevant actors at municipal level in a process of co-creation. This sets the stage for a Swiss energy transition with multiple benefits for the Swiss economy and society.
