About Us

Smart-BEEjS is a consortium of 8 universities and research centres under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, Innovative Training Networks (ITN). The core consortium is supported by 16 non-academic entities, in the United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal, Austria, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Switzerland.
The project trains 15 PhD students using an innovative doctoral training programme. The training programme incorporates three dimensions: (i) deep training in their individual subjects; (ii) systemic thinking and engagement with the needs of citizens and communities as well as experts from different disciplines promoting the development of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs); and, (iii) reflection of the impact of our research and realisation of opportunities from outcomes for supporting a Human-Centric energy transition.

What we do

7 Tips on Energy Justice - What can I do?

The project promotes the development of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs). PEDs are local developments and networks of homes, workplaces and mobility systems which, together, generate more energy than is consumed. This is achieved through a combination of lower energy usage, the local generation of renewable energy and new business models across the energy marketplaces. Our work is demonstrated on the project deliverables.
