Colloquy “Social sciences and energy transitions” – 28 and 29 of May – Grenoble

Energy transition refers to a variety of scenarios. The passage of these scenarios to sustainable futures depends largely on the modalities (public policy , scales , rhythms…) that will govern the development of energy options for both diversification of supply  and for control demand.

The questioning of the energy transition should be open to societal and environmental changes that accompany changes in the energy mix and our relationship to energy.

The “Social sciences and energy transitions” colloquy, organised by the Pacte laboratory and the CIRED, offers an arena for exchange on several fronts progress analysis of the energy transition. It therefore proposes four areas of interdisciplinary exchanges :

  • Energy futures on construction
  • Demand, demands ?
  • Markets, new ports and new divisions
  • Territories in transition

  • The Project

    A city operating entirely on clean energy. In theory, it's possible. But in real life? How to integrate new solutions in existing buildings, systems and people's lives? What are the technical, economic or social barriers? And how to overcome these? That's what we've learned by doing in 20 projects in Grenoble and Amsterdam.

  • Our Activities

  • Achieved Impacts
