Course Overview

Professions are involved in and, somehow, transformed by the energy transition.

New skills are required, both from the technical and social fields. These “green collars” have to deal with the institutionalization of the ecological values  and the local knowledge of the territories. The course will explore these issues with reference to the role of the professionals in promoting a fair and sustainable energy transition.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to understand how the professional profiles of energy transition are intertwined with the overall process of social-technical change. Emerging compromises between technical and social skill will be detected and analysed. Furthermore participants will be able to establish connection between the green professionalization process and the users domain, in order to understand how to enhance new paths of sustainable energy consumption.
