The core mission of the LETS research program is to identify, explore and suggest ways that Sweden can implement low-carbon energy and transport systems for 2050, in order to reach the ambitious climate policy objectives suggested by the 2°C target.
Hence, the overarching research question is:
What societal transitions are implied by low-carbon futures and how can these transitions be governed and implemented to meet challenging climate policy objectives?
LETS= govering transitions towards Low-Carbon Energy and Transport Systems for 2050.
The research program started january 2009 and extends until 2012.
