Energie Suffizienz

Energiesparen als Schlüssel zur Energiesicherheit – Suffizienz als Strategie

Aktuell überschlagen sich Vorschläge, wie auf den Krieg in der Ukraine energiepolitisch zu reagieren ist. Ein Schlüsselprinzip rückt dabei erst langsam ins öffentliche Bewusstsein: Energiesuffizienz. Das bedeutet, den Bedarf an Energie zu senken. Energiesuffizienz senkt Kosten, reduziert den Bedarf an Zukäufen, macht energiepolitisch unabhängiger und ist klimapolitisch hilfreich. Sie muss jetzt zu einem zentralen Prinzip politischen Handelns werden.

Navigating towards sustainability: how research networks can make a difference using the ‘network compass’

Addressing complex sustainability problems requires more than scientific knowledge. Researchers must collaborate with societal actors from government, business and civil society, and engage in the co-production of knowledge and action. Sustainability-oriented networks can help to foster this co-production as they link different types of actors across various scales. But how can such networks effectively facilitate co-production? The ‘network compass’ offers guidance in supporting networks to reflect on effective strategies for sustainability transformations.
