Energy justice in the era of green transitions<https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/14351/energy-justice-in-the-era-of-green-transitions>

Academic research into energy poverty has continued to grow over the past few decades, covering reflections on drivers, measures, lived experiences, and amelioration among others. One common thread is the impacts on lower-income and disadvantaged households, particularly around the issues of equity and justice. In the context of our continued move towards renewable and sustainable energy globally and the worsening effects of climate change, these issues are growing concerns, especially in relation to access to affordable and clean energy (SDG7), and energy efficient features and technologies, where affordability (or lack thereof) is often cited as a growing wedge in the widening gap between the haves and those left behind. This widening gap is noted to transpire into greatly divergent outcomes for different strata of society, ranging from comfort, health and wellbeing, education, employment, social participation to beyond. Some of these impacts may be long lasting and intergenerational.

In this Research Topic, we call for contributions on how the issue of justice is considered and addressed within the context of transitioning to a renewable future. These may include government or industry-led programs that improve disadvantaged communities' access to new, green technologies; grassroots projects born out of necessity; and also the impacts - at the household or broader levels - these technologies are making to individuals and society, just to name a few. Submissions that showcase less often discussed cultural, geographical and political contexts are particularly welcome.

We welcome both conceptual and empirical submissions on themes such as but not limited to:

  *   Disadvantaged households' access to renewable energy and green technologies
  *   Household compensatory behaviors, e.g. reduced transport and social mobilities
  *   Critiques of and reflections on assistance programs and policies
  *   Principles for and challenges in achieving energy justice
  *   Intersections of domestic and other energy / energy efficient technology consumptions (e.g. transport)
  *   Context-specific case studies, especially from the Global South

Co-editors:

  *   Dr Edgar Liu, UNSW Australia
  *   Dr Neil Simcock, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
  *   Dr Mari Martiskainen, University of Sussex, UK

For more information, and abstract submission, please check out the topic homepage<https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/14351/energy-justice-in-the-era-of-green-transitions>.

Best regards,

Edgar
