Transition Pathways to a Low Carbon Economy
This research project is a collaboration between leading UK engineers, social scientists and policy analysts, supported by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the energy company E.ON UK.
The academic partners are based at the Universities of Bath, Cardiff, East Anglia, Leeds, Loughborough, Strathclyde, Surrey, Imperial College London and University College London. Objectives of the Transition Pathways to a Low Carbon Economy project are:
- to learn from past transitions to help explore future transitions and what might enable or avoid them
- to design and evaluate transition pathways towards alternative socio-technical energy systems and infrastructures for a low carbon future
- to understand and where appropriate model the changing roles, influences and opportunities of large and small 'actors' in the dynamics of transitions
