Title Regional energy transition (RET): How to improve the connection of praxis and theory? Author van Engelenburg, B.C.W. Maas, N. Publication year 2018 Abstract A regional energy transition (RET) implies a drastic transformation of the energy system and, hence, a lot of challenges. A RET calls for an integrative local approach. In this essay we describe and compare the current practice and the state of knowledge on this topic. We find that theory has not yet developed sufficiently to address the practical challenges. Part of the problem is that what has been developed has too little connection with local practice. We conclude that the development of theoretical knowledge must be better attuned to the needs of the practitioners. © 2018 Firenze University Press.
