15/04/18 - Appel à communications - The Future of Energy : leading the change

Appel à communications dans le cadre du programme de recherche "The Future of Energy" organisé par la fondation Tuck.

"The multi-year scientific program The Future of Energy is rooted in our profound conviction that the energy sector, including the transportation and building sectors, will undergo very significant changes during the coming decades. However, the pace, form and characteristics of these changes remain highly uncertain. Reducing the uncertainty level is of prime importance for both, public and industrial investors, in order to anticipate future evolutions, support most desirable orientations and avoid sudden disruptions.

From year to year, different topics are proposed to the research community through competitive calls for proposals. These topics and the associated findings will be the building blocks of a global, multi-sector, multi-disciplinary, systemic vision of the future of energy."


The call 2018 of the The Future of Energy program focuses on three topics :

  • New relationships between energy systems and communities
  • Future of liquid or gaseous energy carriers
  • Climate change impacts on energy systems

The first Topic "New relationships between energy systems and communities" may be answered along the following line :

"Energy systems, in particular electricity generation, have been largely developed as centralized production systems with no direct relationship to the local or regional communities. Decentralized, diffuse electricity generation technologies like solar and wind have the potential to redefine the relationships between the energy system and the local/regional communities. Which business and governance models have been developed in different European countries ? At what scale (size/geography of community, volume of energy produced) ? Which are the driving forces (bottom-up, top down) ? What are strengths and weaknesses of the different models, their successes and failures ? What are the key success factors ? May these models be deployed in other regions/countries or on other continents ?"
