Jonas Meckling, Associate Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, will present "The Politics of Energy Transition."

The emerging transition to clean energy is highly political—it imposes costs on some producers and consumers, while offering benefits to others. In this seminar, Jonas Meckling examines the conditions under which policymakers can adopt costly policies to drive transformative change in the energy system. He draws on government responses to the 1973 oil crisis to identify political varieties of energy transitions. Meckling will discuss important implications for the political opportunities and constraints for clean energy transitions.
