Renewable transition: Strategies and discourses


Project Description

Many international policies have been set to tackle climate change. The Paris Agreement is an example of such policies. In preparation to comply with these agreements, countries are set internal policies and targets. In many countries, a relevant action towards emissions reductions has been the transition to renewable energy. This project aims to explore this context from an organisational perspective. In particular, this research will explore strategies companies in the renewable energy sector are taking to gain and maintain competitive advantage. This project is also interested in understanding how strategies are communicated, especially how discourses are constructed to convey renewable energy as profitable as well as responsible activity sector.
