Energy Transition Research at OIES focuses on the trends shaping energy systems, transformations in behaviours and business models, and the implications of shifting from the existing hydrocarbon-dominated energy economy to a system in which renewables, low-carbon energy sources and abated use of hydrocarbons will play a much greater role.
Energy Transition Research identifies and analyses the key themes shaping the energy system and combines and coordinates transition research themes from across all other OIES Research Programmes.

The May 2021 edition of the Oxford Energy Forum covered the role of hydrogen in the energy transition in some detail, starting from an observation that the decarbonized energy system was expected to see an increase in the share of electricity in final consumption rising from its current 20 per cent to around 50 per […]
In this podcast David Ledesma talks to Aliaksei Patonia and Veronika Lenivova about Hydrogen pipelines and high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission lines and how Hydrogen pipelines offer the advantage of transporting larger energy volumes, but existing projects are dwarfed by the vast networks of HVDC transmission lines. The podcast discusses how advocates for hydrogen pipelines […]
Maritime transport accounts for ~3% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs), yet is not covered by the Paris Agreement objectives. Earlier this year, the sector’s main regulator, International Maritime Organisation (IMO) adopted a revised GHG strategy setting an enhanced common ambition to reach net-zero GHG emissions from international shipping close to 2050. As of 2024, […]
