I am a PhD researcher focusing on systemic interventions within the energy field that often yield positive social and environmental values. Specifically, my research looks at peer-to-peer energy sharing initiatives (i.e., electricity exchange among grid-connected peers) from a values-based perspective, in an attempt to scrutinise the assumption that social values emerge as a core outcome of the multiple human-to-human energy sharing interactions within such initiatives.
