Investigating national contexts: the survey

The history and performance of CAIs strongly depends on the cultural, social and regulatory contexts from where they develop. COMETS is investigating these dynamics by developing a comprehensive survey for a number of CAIs in six EU countries

What we are doing

On the 1st of May 2020 COMETS survey has been launched. The submission lasted untill the end of August 2020 and now we are in the process of checking the coherence and robustness of data collected. 
The complete dataset will be realeased by the end pf september 2020, then we will start the analysis, by applying indicators aimed at grasping the social, economic and evnironmental impact of CAIs activites. Rresults of the analysis will be released by the end of december 2020.   

The survey represents an important resource to create new knowledge about CAIs in the energy sector, including:

  • a deeper understanding of the different typologies of CAIs 
  • the identification of the main factors that seem to influence CAIs performance and success/failure.

This will then give insight into which actions and projects tend to be more successful in which typologies and that's why the survey is the basis for selection of case studies as well as for exploring the replication potential.
