Transparent Assessment of Smart Local Energy Systems

We are interested in understanding the dynamics of multiple components of smart local energy systems (SLES) among various stakeholders. This survey will ask you questions about ranking the relative importance of various metrics within six key high-level themes: technical performance, data management, governance, people and living, business and economics, and environment. Please be assured that your responses will be kept completely confidential.

The information gathered will help to create a transparent multi-criteria assessment and refine the current methodology conducted.

This survey should take around 8 minutes to complete. After completing this survey, we would like you to go on to complete at least one more detailed 8 minute survey on a specific theme. The links to these are provided at the end. Further information on these surveys is provided here.

Thank you for participating in our survey.
