    Abstract

    A systemic change is needed in order to gain a transition to a sustainable society. This requires the understanding of drivers and barriers and the dynamics of the socio-technical system. In this paper we use the multi-level perspective and innovation system functions to analyse the emerging innovation system around energy-efficiency and use of renewable energy in new housing districts. Our results indicate a need for service business, improved coordination and better diffusion of knowledge.
