Summary: The transition to a zero-carbon energy system appears a daunting task. The challenge includes the development of new technologies, new partnerships, and new value streams. As the system reorganises itself, uncertainty and complexity are bound. This talk will discuss some of the tools Malcolm has developed to manage the transitions in their just and agile manner. He will draw from the experience of working in both the UK and Africa.
