Transition signals

Transition signals are signs that a profound multi-dimensional technology-oriented transformation is underway.

These transitions have impacts across infrastructure, actors in the sector, policies and governance and the overarching rules of the game. The trajectories and outcomes of major socio-technical transitions cannot be predicted and controlled. However, they can be tracked so that they can be navigated and influenced. We are tracking the transformation of urban energy configurations within South African sustainable energy transition, with attention to increasingly distributed renewable energy infrastructure, and decentralisation of governance (encompassing policy, finance, and actors).

This tracker is evolving. If you would like to contribute a transition signal, please complete this form
