The project provides an open-source and therefore accessible energy system tool, which maps investment decisions in energy system-relevant producer technologies. The energy system tool is developed by the network partner the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE).
The innovative core of the tool is the integration of environmental, psychological and sociological factors in the mapping of investment decisions in energy technologies. ZIRIUS is responsible for the identification, empirical survey and future assessment of sociological factors. In addition, ZIRIUS participates in developing methodology for integrating social science-related factors into Sozio-E2S.
