Fouquet, Roger and Pearson, Peter J. G. 2012. Past and prospective energy transitions: Insights from history [Editorial]. Energy Policy 50 , pp. 1-7. 10.1016/j.enpol.2012.08.014

This introduction to the special issue on past and prospective energy transitions presents some insights from research into past energy transitions of relevance for a possible transition to a low carbon economy. It also provides a synthesis of insights generated during a workshop attended by many of the leading researchers on this topic at Cardiff University in April 2011. The final section introduces the articles in the special issue. It is hoped that the workshop and this issue will help to move forwards the integration of the exciting research on past energy transitions in ways that will also offer valuable insights into the challenges of prospective low carbon transitions.
