Skip to 0 minutes and 27 secondsCurrent global energy use is unprecedentedly high. Climate change will hit us hard. It will affect global food production heavily. It will damage global biodiversity heavily. It will lead to significant sea level rise. And that, in turn, will lead to loss of fertile land but also mass migration.
Skip to 0 minutes and 52 secondsIt is still possible to see futures in which we develop and build and implement other energy systems. But it is extremely complicated because technological solutions depends on what is possible in a certain region-- the potential for wind energy, potential bioenergy.
Skip to 1 minute and 14 secondsThis is, of course, about energy technologies, energy systems, infrastructure, but also economics, social science. It is about planning, governance, policy, and law.
Skip to 1 minute and 30 secondsAll the science fields need to work together to provide answers to these type of questions. In this seven-week, free, online course, you will learn how this complexity can be dealt with and how those science fields can work together to provide you answers for those type of transitions.
