Technology and National Dynamics of Energy Transitions
5 Jun 18
2:00pm to 4:00pm
East of England and Midlands
C15 Pope Building, University Park, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, NG7 2RD
Energy Technologies Research Institute (ETRI)
This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
This free, open lecture will explore how 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?
The key speaker is Dr. Benjamin Sovacool. He is Professor of Energy Policy at the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the School of Business, Management, and Economics, part of the University of Sussex. There he serves as Director of the Sussex Energy Group and Director of the Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand which involves the University of Oxford and the University of Manchester. He is also Director of the Centre for Energy Technologies and Professor of Business and Social Sciences in the Department of Business Development and Technology at Aarhus University in Denmark.
