Abstract/Resumo
Human practices of energy consumption both transform—and are transformed by—social structures. This essay introduces the concept of “energy transitions,” structural shifts in energy use and their pathways, obstacles, and consequences, challenging the view of “transitions” as the simple replacement of one energy resource by another. Moreover, it also showcases, in three galleries, open-access multimedia resources on “histories of transitions,” “contrasting transitions,” and “imagining transitions.”
