System design for sustainable energy systems in emerging and low-income contexts

Format: Keynotes & Talks, RSD2, RSD2 Programme, Topic: Socioecological Design

Carlo Vezzoli

This keynote presents Product-Service System Design for Sustainability as a promising approach to tackle in emerging and low-income contexts the socio-ethical dimension of sustainability together with the environmental and economic ones.

Firstly, reasons for applying eco-efficient Product Service Systems (PSS) innovation in low-income and emerging contexts are highlighted. Secondly, the known model of the distributed economy is introduced as a promising characteristic of such eco-efficient Product-Service Systems to address the issue of locally-based renewable and sustainable energy systems as the key leverage for a democratisation of access to resources, goods and services.

The EU-funded Learning Network on Sustainability (LeNS) project and its Method for System Design for Sustainability (MSDS) are presented in this framework.
