Description

This book elucidates what it means to transition to alternative sources of energy and discusses the potential for this energy transition to be a more democratic process. The book dynamically describes a recent sociotechnical study of a number of energy transitions occurring in several countries - France, Germany and Tunisia, and involving different energy technologies - including solar, on/off-shore wind, smart grids, biomass, low-energy buildings, and carbon capture and storage. Drawing on a pragmatist tradition of social inquiry, the authors examine the consequences of energy transition processes for the actors and entities that are affected by them, as well as the spaces for political participation they offer. This critical inquiry is organised according to foundational categories that have defined the energy transition - 'renewable' energy resources, markets, economic instruments, technological demonstration, spatiality ('scale') and temporality ('horizon(s)'). Using a set of select case studies, this book systematically investigates the role these categories play in the current developments in energy transitions. 

Olivier Labussière is a researcher at the French National Scientific Research Centre (CNRS). He is member of the Pacte Research Centre (Grenoble, France) where he leads the interdisciplinary 'Environments' research group. He studies the relationships between energy, society and space, and their emerging issues and politics in different environments (underground, onshore, offshore, aerial).

Nadaï Alain is senior interdisciplinary social scientist at CIRED, the International Research Centre on Environment and Development, a part of French CNRS. His research activity has been centred on environmental controversies and policies, landscape policies, energy transition policies and the societal and spatial changes induced by energy transition processes. He has contributed as a leading author to the IPCC Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN, 2011).
