We are seeking your opinion on how the UK's planning systems can better facilitate the delivery of smart energy, to ensure an affordable, clean energy system for the future.


Our questionnaire is seeking your opinion, experiences and examples. It should not take more than 10 minutes, but please ensure you provide enough detail that your views, or prompts to us, are sufficiently clear.


This questionnaire is part of a research project funded by the RTPI (SW), being led by Regen, in collaboration with Pell Frischmann, The Landmark Practice and the University of the West of England. Through this research, we will consider the characteristics of a smart energy system and identify potential interfaces with planning regulation, policy and practice. We will provide an overview of the technological change that is likely to interface with spatial planning and consider the potential for this to impact on people and places.


Completed questionnaires can be submitted anonymously. Contact details are only requested if you opt to provide us with further details of an example or case study that you feel we should investigate further.
