Urban Energy Transitions

Spring 2019

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 5024

Credits: 3

Can transitions to more just and sustainable urban energy regimes be purposefully steered? What low-carbon alternatives exist and what role can local communities play in normalizing them? This course offers an introduction to renewable energy systems and uses transition theories to investigate and learn from past and ongoing socio-technical innovations. Students will become familiar with transition management frameworks and use them to explore transition cases in the domains of solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, biofuels, and hydropower energy systems, among others. The role of everyday social practices and consumption will also be critically examined through transition cases in urban transportation, housing, and food procurement infrastructures and institutions.
