Outreach and dissemination

There was substantial outreach activity by the Transitions to New Technologies (TNT) Program in 2013 with respect to summarizing and disseminating previous multi-year research projects and assessment activities plus the editing of a book, three special journal issues, and publication of 40 articles and book chapters.

GEA Launch

The work of the Global Energy Assessment (GEA) was summarized and presented at major launch events in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels (European Commission), Mexico City, London, Oslo, Tokyo, Sao Paolo, the US West Coast (Stanford University), Washington DC, and Vienna (at the International Vienna Energy Forum co-organized by IIASA, the Austrian Foreign Ministry, and UNIDO).

All senior TNT scientists participated in these major launch events including Arnulf Grubler, Luis Gomez-Echeverri, Nebojsa Nakicenovic, and Keywan Riahi.

A sequel activity to GEA was the editing of a book volume entitled “Energy Technology Innovation, Learning from Historical Successes and Failures” to be published by Cambridge University Press in 2014.

The volume was edited by Arnulf Grubler and Charlie Wilson. The editors provided special editorial introductory notes to each chapter as well as the overall framing and concluding chapters. It is worthy of note that 21 of the 25 chapters of the book volume were (co-)written by current TNT scientists or TNT alumni.
