Energy Transitions

energy

Energy production and use account for two- thirds of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Our research focuses on the system level sustainability transitions in the energy sector which are needed to mitigate climate change. How energy is produced and used is facing number of simultaneous disruptions. Energy system is impacted of changes in energy generation, technologies, distribution, energy consumption, government policy and regulation. Particularly use of sustainable energy sources and disruptive technologies are expanding rapidly and challenging existing ways doing business in the energy sector. Disruptive technologies have been defined as advances that will transform life, business, and ultimately the global economy. Renewable energy production and storage technologies are potentially disruptive technologies because they change the way we produce energy, but also the way we use energy, do business with it and innovate. Smart energy solutions can cascade into new business ecosystems, leading to radical shifts in the roles of producers, service providers and consumers.
