In this edited collection of essays, researchers and practitioners, occupying varying positionalities in the energy sector, reflect on their experiences in grappling with the implementation and governance of renewable energy technologies across a diverse range of configurations and locations in South Africa. The volume has been in the works since 2019 and the editorial team, comprising Megan Davies, Holle Wlokas, Nina Callaghan and Mark Swilling, are pleased that it will be available to students, researchers and practitioners alike as a compendium to grappling with the challenges of the unfolding energy transition in South Africa. Contributors are all in some way, connected to the socio-technical energy transitions research group at the Centre for Sustainability Transitions.
