Abstract [en]

The empowerment of users, their active role in managing electricity use or as micro-producers, and the potential for self-sufficient local energy communities play an important role in the legitimization of smart grids and are highlighted in many policy documents. However, the extent to which energy system configurations associated with smart grids actually empower users and are socially inclusive is an open question. In this chapter, we briefly discuss the social inclusivity of smart grid roll-out in Sweden as an element of a democratic energy system and focus on how the interests and needs of some users may be disregarded and even “designed out” in the implementation process of smart grids.
