The Project

Economics of Climate Change – Transformation of the energy system towards sustainability focussing on community-based activities (REsCO)

True to its motto "Res per collaboration" or "Success through Collaboration", the project REsCO seeks to find out to what extent or how by taking into account the social context, private households can be motivated to take a more active part in the transformation of the energy system. Accordingly, the focus is not on investigating individuals’ behaviour in isolation, but on the influence of social factors on the actions of individuals. Thus, the project centres on community-based activities of private households.
Additionally, the project Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change ( supports the transfer of knowledge between the 29 research projects of the BMBF funding measure Economics of Climate Change II – among them REsCO – and the exchange between scientists and practitioners.

REsCO is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of the Strategy „Research for Sustainability" (FONA) /LINK:
under grant number 01LA1827.
