Geographies of energy policies for the ecological transition after Covid-19

Keeping as a background the view that the low-carbon energy transition is fundamentally a geographical-political process, with powerful effects on the configuration of socio-economic models, the article focuses on the following three key issues: (i) The definition of the concept of sustainable energy policy transition, starting from space; (ii) The geographical and spatial dimensions of ecological transition policies in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, looking at structures and scales of energy governance; (iii) Post-Covid spatial strategies by trying to observe the contents of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) in Italy, where, as is happening in other countries, the policy of sustainable energy transitions is now at a critical point, where the scale and directionality favored by the public sector for post-pandemic recovery will be crucial.
