​The emerging transition to clean energy is highly political—it
imposes costs on some producers and consumers, while offering benefits
to others. In this seminar, Jonas Meckling examines the conditions under
which policymakers can adopt costly policies to drive transformative
change in the energy system. He draws on government responses to the
1973 oil crisis to identify political varieties of energy transitions.
Meckling will discuss important implications for the political
opportunities and constraints for clean energy transitions.
