As part of its activities, the PARENT project has delivered a number of different reports to help in achieving its aim in creating a community to help reduce household energy. A central goal of our project was to understand the Ethical, Legal, Social and Acceptability concerns. The scientific dissemination of the project is highlighted below.

The deliverables lay out the basis for several of the choices we have made throughout the project, and document the project’s progress. We also direct interested readers to our reports in WP2 and WP3 on regulatory requirements and social acceptability respectively. They serve as a means for recording the evolution of the project as well. The entire list of deliverables is below. The key deliverables in our project (marked in bold) consist of the Stakeholder Mapping exercise (D1.1), the Behaviour Change Toolkit (D4.4) and the Pilot Protocol (D6.1).
WP3 - Social acceptability
WP6 - Pilots
WP7 - Living labs
