A “Wicked” Energy Transition

Mar 10, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

The ongoing energy transition in the United States is a “wicked” problem, beset with complexity and uncertainty. To meet decarbonization goals one thing is definite, though—the buildout of renewable energy infrastructure will change physical, societal, and cultural landscapes. We need new solutions that address distinct and emerging dynamics from this evolution to effectively scale deployment. This panel will explore transdisciplinary approaches to the energy transition and three of its highly interconnected components: landscapes, energy infrastructure, and social perceptions.
