Ethics and Justice in Energy Transitions
Thanks to the Justice 40 initiative, the language of just transitions is now fundamental to U.S. energy policy. Energy institutions and researchers are only beginning, however, to grapple with the complex challenge of defining and implementing just transitions in theory and in practice. This talk reviews the complex dynamics of energy transitions and the diverse ways that those dynamics intersect with questions of ethics of justice. This webinar features Dr. Clark A. Miller, Director of the Center for Energy & Society at Arizona State University and Professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society. Dr. Miller is joined by Allen Townsend, graduate student at the University of Virginia. The webinar is hosted by Dr. Caitlin Wylie, Assistant Professor of Science, Technology, and Society at UVA’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
