The ETM programme supports and creates national and international, multidisciplinary RDI-projects and consortiums together with the industrial partners, research organisations, and other stakeholders
Energy Transition Management (ETM) is a new research programme that explores energy transition from multiple angles and perspectives, emphasising on the behavioral, strategic, technological, social, economic, political, and regulative aspects of the transition towards a more sustainable and resilient energy system.
Energy transition is considered a systemic, multi-level phenomenon, where the transition is embedded and depends on the complex relationships and interactions of different stakeholders. At the micro-level, the RDI-efforts are directed to business innovation and the emergence of future energy markets and technologies, especially related to consumer behavior, business model and business innovation, change management, and strategy implementation and practices.
At the meso-level, the focus is on industry architecture and technological innovation, including sustainable ecosystems, value systems, and solutions and technologies. Finally, the energy transition is approached as a socio-technical system at the macro-level, where systemic transition, system resilience and regeneration, and environmental, financial, and policy innovations are key research themes. The ETM programme collaborates closely with VEBIC’s more technologically oriented Future Resilient Energy systems programme.
