Policy Outcomes

The POWERSHIFTS project will produce outcomes that are useful for policy makers, community and cooperative renewable energy actors, and incumbent energy industries. Findings will:

    • Provide information on how energy transitions are progressing in countries across the OECD. Policy makers and energy actors will be able to learn what is working – and not working – from the experiences of others
    • Allow policy makers and energy actors to navigate ongoing transitions more effectively by providing a transparent picture of exactly how political power is shifting
    • Decrease uncertainty for policy makers over how policies are changing, who should be involved, and what policy outcomes can be expected
    • Provide clarity on how to structure renewable energy policy processes to ensure the achievement of equitable and effective outcomes that meet economic, social and environmental goals.
