Innovations and Techno-ecological Transition


This book aims to present a systemic perspective on the techno-ecologic transition to a decarbonated society. The transition towards a low-carbon society is currently an important political, technological, economical and social issue. This transition implies a paradigmatic shift in energy production and energy consumption, in human interaction with natural resources. It questions the way of developing more sustainable technologies and the role of innovations in this process, whether technological or not. How do we go beyond the current lock-in generated by fossil energy? The ongoing progress of innovation is analyzed in the context of a number of the main societal functions, with a focus on energy and food production. However, there remains a gap between intention and action and the management of this transition will take time and will require a broad diffusion of knowledge about this topic among the relevant economic, legal and political actors. The purpose of this book is to highlight from a systemic perspective what is at stake in the current innovations.
