ENBLOC – Enabling energy transition in postsocialist housing cooperatives

realization time: 01.2023 – 12.2025

The project aims to assess the adaptive capacity of housing cooperatives in internalising energy transition based
on the example of Poland and Czechia.

In the project, we will:

  • collect data on housing cooperatives in Poland and Czechia based on administrative registries,
  • explore and assess housing cooperative strategies for dealing with energy transition and energy price increases,
  • disentangle power relations inside housing cooperatives and their associations with other institutional actors
    such as heating companies and municipalities,
  • investigate how and to what extent housing cooperatives and their residents perceive their readiness for short-
    and long-term energy price increases.

The research uses various methods, including household surveys, discrete choice experiments and several dozen interviews with decision-makers in housing cooperatives. The results will enable us to identify modes of action in particular types
of housing cooperatives and provide adaptative transition scenarios for multi-family housing entities in CEE countries.

The project is funded by National Science Centre, Poland, under the OPUS call in the Weave programme (2021/43/I/HS4/03185).
