The Politics of Energy Transitions: From the Oil Crises to Climate Change
23 February 2022, 6:15 pm–7:30 pm
What lessons does the 1973 oil crisis offer for contemporary climate change policy? Join us on 23 February for this event with Jonas Meckling and Jared Finnegan.
This event is free.
The emerging transition to clean energy is highly political—it imposes costs on some producers and consumers, while offering benefits to others. In this seminar, Jared Finnegan and Jonas Meckling examine the conditions under which policymakers can adopt costly policies to drive transformative change in the energy system. They draw on government responses to the 1973 oil crisis to identify political varieties of energy transitions. Finnegan and Meckling will discuss important implications for the political opportunities and constraints for clean energy transitions.
