Accelerating a Just Energy Transition

Nordic stakeholder input on opportunities, challenges, and best practices


This policy brief highlights key takeaways from a Nordic stakeholder dialogue, during 2023, with more than 60 business leaders, researchers, policy-makers, public servants, entrepreneurs and representatives from interest groups. They shared solutions, challenges, suggestions for policy development, opportunities, and best practices, on the topic “Accelerating a just Energy Transition” in Transport and Energy Systems. Three overall observations were; a) Defining “a just energy transition” from a Nordic perspective, setting targets and sharing a positive vision of the society when the transition is made, would help prioritize actions; b) Knowledge gaps in authorities and society needs to be filled; c) Social resistance and reluctance to change behaviour might block transition, so besides technological progress and economic incentives, a more human centered approach is needed.
