Regions Cities Industry Webinar Series: Old Industrial Places and New Energy Economies

28 February 2024 to 28 February 2024

12.00 GMT / 13.00 CET


Energy and low carbon transitions are impacting processes of economic restructuring, in turn producing new economic geographies. In this webinar we focus on places that have experienced waves of economic restructuring for the last 50 years as heavy industry has transformed, often leaving old industrial places with challenging legacies of unemployment, disinvestment and disenchantment. New energy economies layer onto these challenges, producing potential for economic change, development, growth or further loss.  In these talks we will outline research on different industrial towns across Europe that have for different reasons found themselves at the frontier of new energy economies: we examine how these changes are unfolding, and what they mean for future economic geographies.
