Research Spotlight: MICARES

Four of our members from three different units have an NSF Growing Convergence Research award for their project Socio-Technological System Transitions: Michigan Community & Anishinaabe Renewable Energy Systems (MICARES). Led by Principal Investigator Kathy Halvorsen (VPR/SS/CFRES), this project is converging social science theories of values and motivation with engineering and economics understandings of technological feasibility to develop a comprehensive understanding of how and why energy systems, in particular, are reconfigured to include renewable energy resources. The project is in partnership with NGOs, rural communities, and Tribal Nations across Michigan. Find out more at the project website.
