Abstract for: Sustainable energy transition and climate change vulnerabilities: a resilience perspective

This paper focuses on the energy transition in the context of climate change, the effects new and unexpected weather conditions will have on the energy systems and the actions policymakers might take to reduce these effects. The lessons learned in the case study of Guatemala are discussed in the light of how to create more resilience and sustainable energy systems. The results, even bound to exploratory, highlight the threats of climate change effects to renewable energy systems, namely in tropical countries. In this context, policies focused on enhancing resilience and flexibility are explored using simulation models as a proactive response to design and manage energy transition.
