Inhalt Urban innovative areas such as Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) are thought to facilitate decarbonization by means of technological innovations in order to produce more energy than they consume. At the same time, these are people centered in terms realizing a high quality of life and social inclusiveness. The very idea of such districts fits into the shift from “energy transition” to “just energy transition”. However, realizing as well as analyzing such districts or neighborhoods that satisfy the underlying holistic equation of PED = decarbonization + innovation + equity considerations is more than challenging.This seminar is designed to provide different scientific approaches and tools to examine districts which are implemented or planned to be implemented in the near future. We start with an overview of PEDs, tracing their development as a concept. We will critically examine different PED and PED like projects in order to understand how these areas may bring both benefits and burdens to citizens by considering among others topics like energy vulnerability, innovation research, quality of life, actor coalitions, new sustainable business models etc. Additional guest speakers will give insights from economic and engineering perspectives.
Lernziele The aims of this seminar are to get the students acquainted with this innovative concept, to provide the students an interdisciplinary knapsack of how such socio-technical innovations in urban settings may be analyzed, and to learn in what respect scientific results may serve to help shape future policy making.
From a practical point of view, upon completion of this course, students will have a good understanding of how innovative urban areas are planned, implemented and evaluated. They will have a core understanding of some of the most important barriers and opportunities that are faced in PED creation. Although some of these are case specific, learning about these will help to enable students to identify similar issues in other contexts.

MSD 2017
For all students this seminar is optional. They may accredit the credit points for the published module (students of foucs area in social science only) or transfer them to the "Focal Areas in Sustainability Research" module (learning agreement).

This seminar is offered by the MSD. A. Hearns and D. Mihailova are staff members of the Sustainability Research Group, Dep. of Social Sciences, /Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

This course is supported by "Impuls". Impuls supports lecturers and students in implementing projects related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of their courses. The funding from Impuls is intended to train students to become change agents for sustainability and to inspire and enable them to use these competences for sustainable(re) development in their later professional and private lives. More information on the impuls program is available on the website: www.unibas.ch/impuls.”
