J. Doyne Farmer


We are about to make a major transition to an entirely new energy network that no longer emits greenhouse gases. What is the most efficient way to make this transition? What are the economic, sociological and political factors that are blocking this transition, and what can we do to accelerate it? This new project will model the physical, economic, sociological and political aspects of this transition from an interdisciplinary perspective, seeking to understand the sensitive points that can accelerate it.
