Practical Engagements and the Social-Spatial Dimensions of the Post-Petroleum Future

7th November 2016 - 9th November 2016
Tours, France


The aim of this symposium is to examine the social dimensioning of the energy transition with a special but not exclusive consideration of the case of introducing hydrogen and fuel cells into the energy arena. The intersecting range of presentations will explore the relationship between the social scale of future visions and the social scale of actual unfolding of techno-social development. In the case of hydrogen, discussions will explore the question of how visions of the future involving this new energy vector are taking shape in distinct social and geographical spaces.
