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

After publishing his article "Protect global supply chains for low-carbon technologies" in Nature, Prof. Dr. Andreas Goldthau offered his take on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the clear-energy transition to the University of Erfurt's…
Students from Professor Goldthaus Energy Transition Course, together with the IASS Potsdam, developed recommendations on how countries of the Global South should deal with the EU climate policy, more precisely possible carbon taxes.
