Investigating the Systemic Impacts of the Global Energy Transition (ISIGET)

Coal being sold by the roadside

Project Description

The international energy transition is already delivering numerous benefits, but it is also creating new inequalities. The risks posed by this transformation will impact especially on developing countries, which lack access to technologies and capital. What, then, can be done to ensure that these countries can also make the transition to a low-carbon economy? The ISIGET project aims at developing recommendations for equitable forms of governance to reconcile conflicting policy goals.

ISIGET belongs to the research group 'Investigating the Systemic Impacts of the Global Energy Transition' at the IASS Potsdam
