    The design of energy policies requires the involvement of the citizens by means of appropriate information and negotiation mechanisms that make the decision-making more participative. The transition to low carbon economies entails diverse societal issues such as environment, risks, and sustainability. In all these fields there is an increasing demand for effective communication among policy-makers, industry, citizens and researchers in order to build up a solid and well supported policies.
