Abstract

This paper describes the formulation of transition pathways for a low carbon (electrical) energy system in the UK. It uses an approach based on earlier work on understanding transitions, using a multi-level perspective with landscape, regime and niche levels, and its application to the development of ‘socio-technical scenarios’. The paper describes four outline transition pathways for UK energy systems, based on the co-evolution of governance systems and technologies.
