WP 2.1 undertakes an analysis of existing climate crowdfunding projects to investigate their relevance for the supply (WP3) and demand (WP4) design of a locally crowdfunded climate program in Norway. WP 2.1 will apply a triangulation of methods in form of gathering primary and secondary data. The following activities will be conducted: (1) In-depth interviews with representatives of crowdfunding platforms and green projects mentioned above; (2) Collection and analysis of secondary data including internal company records, company websites, press reports and other published sources. We will apply grounded theory for the data analysis. As a result, WP2.1 will identify the building blocks of existing business models of green crowdfunding and determine the economic success factors and barriers and bottlenecks for a locally crowdfunded climate project that will feed into WPs 2.3 to 5.
