Aim: The project aims to improve the knowledge, in theory and practice, about the role of consultants in designing and influencing the development of smart grids. What are the roles and impacts of consultants in the development and design of the smart grid and the energy transition in general? How do consultants conceptualise the smart grid (in reports) in terms of problems and solutions and what implications does this have?
