Smart Energy Investment Survey - A Request from the Suffolk Sustainability Institute

With the Suffolk Sustainability Institute, doctoral researchers at the University of Suffolk are seeking to understand how organisations make decisions about whether they should investment in energy technologies such as solar photovoltaics (PV), heat pumps, battery storage, electric vehicles or wind turbines.

If you are involved in energy projects in the private, public or charitable/voluntary sectors please take part in our online survey via Smart Energy

The survey should take you no longer than twenty minutes to complete, and covers the following areas:

  • Whether and what energy technologies your organisation is investing in
  • How your organisation makes investment decisions in these technologies
  • Measuring the performance of your energy technology investments
  • Your views and opinions about smart energy investment.

Your participation is totally voluntary. Please feel free to share the survey link with colleagues both inside or outside your organisation if they are involved in similar energy technology projects. 

The final results of the research will be freely available with a copy downloadable from the Suffolk Sustainability Institute website  or by e-mailing Peter Gudde at
