Abstract

Nordic actors are expected to take a proactive role in participating in the global and regional energy system transition processes that aim at sustainable development. This presumes a good understanding of the governance of the transition processes. The GoReNEST project was designed to contribute to this end. This Summary Report of the GoReNEST project presents an analytical MLP transition management framework to support the Nordic energy system transition, considers relevant Nordic energy research in the light of this framework and assesses the potential of this research in supporting the governance of energy system transition and related policy planning. An analysis of relevant governance and funding models is also presented, exploring the recent advances in R&D&I governance and funding models. The experiences of the GoReNEST project suggest that the awareness of the MLP transition management framework and its various elements should be enhanced, recognizing also the complementary roles of various research approaches in this respect. Better integration of energy system research and innovation research is also called for. Policy implications and needs for future research are also discussed, including recommendations for Nordic actors.
