History of Energy

The history of energy is important because it mirrors the history of breathtaking improvements in the human condition, but also the massive deterioration of the planet’s natural systems and the great disparity in life opportunities across populations.

Major energy transitions play out over many decades and provide crucial evidence for the design of a new low-carbon energy system. Stories about the social impacts of historic energy transitions will aid the equitable deployment of clean, affordable, and accessible energy services.
