People, politics, and place: an interdisciplinary agenda for the governance of urban energy transitions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


This chapter takes the innovative step of bringing together transition management and design anthropology to develop an approach that accounts for both (1) the experience of everyday life and its transformed possible futures and (2) the structural conditions and path dependencies in incumbent sociotechnical systems that enable and constrain scaling of innovative place-based approaches. It does so by exploring the role of design anthropology in place-based transition experimentation related to urban infrastructural systems at the urban precinct level.
