A few CET researchers are studying the mechanisms of how new energy sectors emerge and how old energy sectors are phased-out. They study what are the energy system, socio-technical and political-economic preconditions and connections within these transitions, primarily at national and global levels, using integrated and systems modelling approaches. UiB also has competence in natural science energy research, relating to various forms of renewable energies, including the Bergen Offshore Wind Centre (BOW).
