Social and Behavioural Aspects to Energy Transition – How Social Policy, Education and Standards can engineer Energy Transition outcomes
Climate change is a scientific fact and despite the naysayers it is the most pervasive challenge that mankind faces in the next twenty years. We are witnessing the prolonged delay by several
governments to change social policy, educate their people and introduce standards to push the carbon free society.
To encourage society to transition to new energy forms we need government initiatives in communications, education and standards that relate to real measures to reduce energy consumption. These initiatives must be in the form of structured models and programs targeting different levels of society to engage with the energy and climate change discourse.
It would be beneficial to examine these initiatives in these areas that have proven to be successful in other countries so we can optimize and close the timeframe for faster transition to new energy systems and forms.
