Energy Transition Tools

As part of the 28th session of the Committee on Sustainable Energy we invite you to an interactive session on Energy Transition tools. The toolkits developed by our partner institutions – World Energy Council,  Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies and Global Climate Forum – are designed to assist stakeholders in analysing and addressing energy transition challenges. These tools can be easily adapted to your projects and programmes. Join us for the demonstration session to experience the uniqueness of these tools and see how these can strengthen your projects.

When:  Wednesday, 25 September from 12h30 – 15h00
Where: E Building, room XXVI and exhibition space in front of meeting room

1.    Kopernikus Project ENavi – Energy Transition Navigation System (Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies)

ENavi sees the German Energiewende as a society-wide transformation process and links scientific analyses with politico-social requirements. ENavi is a navigation tool with which the researchers can assess the effects and side-effects of economic or political measures in advance and draw conclusions accordingly.

2.    Decision Theatre on Sustainable Mobility (Global Climate Forum)

Decision Theatre methodology supports group decision processes with data and simulations, displayed on large screens surrounding a group. The computer output changes depending on how the discussion of the group progresses. Instead of focusing only on facts and numbers, the “Mobile Solution Theatre” allows to create narratives based on scenarios that can broaden the knowledge space for decision-makers or citizens. Due to constant interactions with the model, stakeholders can in turn contribute to improving scientific results and methods. Beyond the mobility sector, GCF is planning to explore other areas of sustainability transitions, such as the risks of crashes in computerised electricity markets or the challenge of inequality in sustainability transitions.

3.    Transition Toolkit (World Energy Council)

The transition toolkit consists of 5 products (tools) that include (i) World Energy Issues Monitor: reality check – global, regional, national energy leaders’ perspectives on the key challenges; (ii) Energy Policy Trilemma: policy pathfinding to manage security, equity and sustainability through transition; (iii) World Energy Scenarios: a tool for bigger picture thinking, revealing deeper assumptions and reframing choices and options; (iv) Dynamic Resilience: better prepare firms for new shocks and stresses and adapt whole systems to emerging and systemic risks; (v) Innovation Insights: deeper into disruptive dynamics and moving transition innovation from the margins to mainstream. The Energy Transition Toolkit can be used to generate quality dialogues with energy stakeholders across the value chain, encouraging experimentation and futures thinking and empowering sustainable systems transitions.
