The Technology and National Dynamics of Energy Transitions

Energy Technologies Research Institute Lecture

Transitioning away from our current global energy system is of paramount importance. The speed at which a transition can take place—its timing, or temporal dynamics—is a critical element of consideration. This lecture will investigate time in global and national energy transitions by asking: What does the mainstream academic literature suggest about the time scale of energy transitions?
