The project


INSPIRE-Grid is an EU-funded research project that stands for “Improvedand eNhanced Stakeholders Participation In Reinforcement of Electricity Grid”. With ten partners from six different countries, INSPIRE-Grid aims to increase stakeholder engagement in grid expansion projects, better manage conflicts and speed up the permitting process. By way of an interdisciplinary approach, INSPIRE-Grid will develop stakeholder-led processes and design an expert-led European good practice guide.

The department Environmental Psychology of IZES is leading Work package 2 – “stakeholders’ concerns and needs”. Objectives of the workpackage are analysing the stakeholders’ concerns and needs on different stakeholder levels and identifying relevant acceptance factors regarding grid extension measures. Therefore, qualitative interviews with members of different grid related stakeholder groups are conducted.
