Conceptualizing Germany’s Energy Transition: Institutions, by Ludger Gailing,Timothy Moss

By Ludger Gailing,Timothy Moss

This is the 1st e-book to discover methods of conceptualizing Germany’s ongoing strength transition. even though largely acclaimed in coverage and study circles around the world, the Energiewende is poorly understood by way of social technological know-how scholarship. there's an pressing have to delve past descriptive money owed of coverage implementation and contestation so as to unpack the deeper concerns at play in what has been termed a 'grand societal transformation.' The authors strategy this in 3 ways: First, they decide upon and represent conceptual ways suited for analyzing the reordering of institutional preparations, socio-material configurations, strength kinfolk and spatial buildings of power platforms in Germany and past. moment, they assess the price of those thoughts in describing and explaining power transitions, pinpointing their relative strengths and weaknesses and exploring parts of complementarity and incompatibility. Third, they illustrate how those innovations will be utilized – separately and together – to counterpoint empirical study of Germany’s strength transition.
