In its Sixth Assessment Report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has underscored the importance of innovation and technology transfer to achieve the overarching Paris Agreement global temperature goals. To this end, a broad array of technologies is being developed and implemented in Europe to both ensure the transition to a low-carbon society and to mitigate the expected consequences of global warming. However, to regulate and ensure full uptake of low-carbon technologies unfolds manifold obstacles and challenges from a legal, economic, and social perspectives.

This workshop aims therefore to address the legal, economic and social aspects of deploying key technological developments to achieve the low-carbon transition in Europe. In particular, the workshop will address the following key topics

  • Renewable Energy Sources uptake and technological innovation.
  • Digitalisation of the energy system and smart systems.
  • Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS).
  • Social impacts of low-carbon technologies.
  • Deployment of climate engineering techniques.
