“The local embedding of technologies through community-led initiatives: the case of sustainable energy”

Jake Barnes’ PhD thesis (2016) looks at how how are community-led energy initiatives integrating and using sustainable technologies locally. This uncovers a gap in current knowledge between the how technology is adopted by wider society the how technology is used by individuals. Jake proposes that community-led initiatives can fill this gap and how the local context can influence project development.
