Energy Seminar – Week 3: Winning the Energy Transition

In this seminar, Chris Nelder, host and creator of the Energy Transition Show podcast, shares some observations from his eight years and over 200 episodes of interviewing energy and climate researchers and experts from all over the world. He will highlight some of the key considerations that are necessary to make the energy transition successful, but which may not come naturally to researchers and communicators, including: how to influence and persuade policymakers; the war of narratives about our climate future; the challenges of the “mid-transition”; corruption and regulatory capture; “unglamorous solutions”; why we much deliberately center distributed energy and “just transition” objectives; and the challenges of the political context.
