A word by EPLL's executive director
The Living Lab is the most effective model for open innovation on a territory:
It involves of all stakeholders since early phases of development
It allows large scale testing (real life testing with cities, citizens, companies).
Energy Living Lab adopts the European framework of Living Labs.
Using this framework allows benchmarking and cooperation with other projects in Europe.
Climate change is frequently referred to as one of the defining challenges of the twenty-first century. We concur. In broad terms, the climate challenge is relatively straightforward. However, clean energy transition is not easy. The political economy of energy transitions is of interest across both the developed and developing worlds. As emphasized, the mitigation challenge cannot be addressed by developed countries alone.
