This collection of 10 pieces, together with 3 forewords, an introduction, and 2 afterwords, advocates for the Social Sciences and Humanities to be more involved in energy policymaking. All of its contributions are highly interdisciplinary, with each chapter grounded in at least three different Social Sciences and Humanities disciplines. These varying perspectives come together to cover an array of issues relevant to the energy transition, including: energy poverty, justice, political ecology, governance, behaviours, imaginaries, systems approaches, modelling, as well as the particular challenges faced by interdisciplinary work.

SHAPE ENERGY’s ‘Think Piece Collection has been published by Palgrave Macmillan as an open access book. As a whole, the book presents new ideas for future energy policy, particularly at the European level.
