Energy Transitions

Energy is one of the most important resources in today’s society. We all need energy but its creation and use have far-reaching implications for factors such as climate change, politics and many aspects of daily life.

A number of important energy disciplines are currently experiencing a period of transformation, including:

  • Production (fossil fuels and renewable energy)
  • Transportation and distribution (electricity and district networks)
  • Consumption (demand-side management and energy efficiency)
  • Security and access
  • Climate change and climate change mitigation


Globally, energy is evolving from a centralized system, with big production plants, to a distributed system, in which each of us becomes a “prosumer” (both producing and consuming energy). Energy technologies are developing rapidly, allowing new and more efficient ways to deliver energy on varying scales. In addition, consumers have an increasingly important role to play in improving the efficiency of these systems.

The Energy Transitions section of Global Transitions seeks papers that take a multidisciplinary approach to mapping the changes taking place in our energy system. Submissions on all aspects of energy will be considered, including energy resources, production, planning, conservation, efficiency, innovation, policy, and acceptance, as well as social aspects of energy.
