Workshop "Energy Transitions Revisited"

On July 13-14 the Research Group "International Relations" hosted an interdisciplinary workshop on the topic "Energy Transitions Revisited: the material and socio-political dimensions of renewable energy technologies". The event has been coordinated by Linda Wallbott and Judith Kreuter (Working Group on International Relations) and is associated with the Working Group "Nature, Resources and Conflicts" of the German Association for Peace and Conflict Studies (AFK) and the research project "Green Transformations in the global South." Postgraduates and post-docs from all over germany came together to discuss the energy transition in its various dimensions.

The workshop started with a public event on July 12, during which the potential but also the challenges and trade-offs of the energy transition in Darmstadt, Germany and Europe were discussed. Prof. Dr. Michèle Knodt (TU Darmstadt), Dr. Mario Neukirch (University of Stuttgart), Dr. Monika Meyer and municipal councillor Iris Behr (both Institute for Housing and Environment) highlighted different aspects of research and political practice concerning the energy transition.

The workshop as well as the kick-off event have touched central questions of the research conducted by the Institute of Political Science, notably within the context of the Institute's colloquium "Energy - Climate - Environment".
