The energy transition is a contradictory subject:
- on the one hand, market valuation offers little incentive because companies do not have strong incentives to engage in this transition and,
- on the other hand it is essential to the sustainability of our economies.
In the context of economic and social pressures, it is the role of associations and cooperatives that is most intriguing. The actors from the social and solidarity economy are very active in these "new" areas, such as renewable energy, organic farming and recycling. Among the distinctive features of these companies, we can emphasize their search for different forms of cooperation with public and private actors, as well as their anchoring in a specific territory. The objective of this International Study Day is to organize workshops on the issue of energy transition and its multidimensional characteristics.
