The Routledge Handbook of Energy Transitions draws upon a unique and multidisciplinary network of experts from around the world to explore the expanding field of energy transitions.

This Handbook recognizes that considerable changes are underway or are being developed for the modes in which energy is sourced, delivered and utilized. Employing a socio-technical approach that accounts for economics and engineering as well as more cross-cutting factors, including innovation, policy and planning, as well as management, the volume considers contemporary ideas and practices that characterize the field. The book explores pressing issues including choices about infrastructure, the role of food systems and materials, sustainability and energy democracy. Disruption is a core theme throughout, with the authors examining topics such as digitalization, geopolitics, and COVID 19, along with regional similarities and differences. Overall, The Routledge Handbook of Energy Transitions advances the field of energy transitions by connecting ideas, taking stock of empirical insights and challenging how we think about the theory and practice of energy systems change.

This innovative volume functions as an authoritative roadmap with both regional and global relevance. It will be an essential resource for students, policymakers, researchers and practitioners researching and working in the fields of energy transitions, planning, environmental management and policy, sustainable business, engineering, science and technology studies, political science, geography, design anthropology, and environmental justice.
