Conference Themes 

This Conference brings together the latest research on energy transitions from across several countries. It involves institutes, researchers and key participants in the process of energy transition, to learn from experience and to reflect on obstacles and possibilities. It is focused on the following five themes:

  1. Socio-technical innovation, institutional change and the transition;
  2. Narratives of transition: technological versus behavioural, centralised versus decentralised, market mechanisms versus direct intervention;
  3. Models for transition: regulatory, community and business;
  4. Putting people at the centre of energy transition: communities, workers, Indigenous Peoples;
  5. Visions for transition – energy justice, energy commons, energy democracy.
