With the unprecedented increases in energy consumption since the industrial revolution and, particularly, since the economic boom in the second half of the twentieth century, the production of energy-related knowledge has also increased dramatically. Especially in times of energy crises and energy transitions, when new forms of energy became more important, old certainties crumbled while new ones emerged. At the second meeting of our trilateral conference series, we want to scrutinize, how experts from the natural, social, and political sciences, as well as engineers, economists and actors from the civil society developed different forms of knowledge concerning energy, how they disseminated their knowledge and competed with each other to shape both energy policy and the energy economy.
