The conference is built on the conviction that energy transition, in order to be feasible and sustainable, requires an understanding of the underlying social justice issues. The challenge is to go beyond current discussions on technical aspects and to focus on the social justice issues involved in the energy transition.
Dr. Nakicenovic will introduce the opening plenary session and will discuss energy and other social transitions throughout history. He will touch on both the agricultural and industrial revolutions which preface the required grand transformation of our current global energy system to meet present and future global development challenges, both environmental and social. His presentation is entitled: "Energy history: from the Industrial Revolution to the Global Energy Transformation."
