The Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG) was established in 2014 within the Department of Land Economy in order to conduct integrative research on the governance of environmental transitions C-EENRG’s core mission is to conduct integrative research on the governance of environmental transitions, understood as social and technological processes driven by environmental constraints that lead to fundamental changes in social organisation. Its approach is inherently interdisciplinary, with a 30+ staff including lawyers, economists and political scientists, but also engineers and physicists. In line with the University of Cambridge’s strategic initiative on energy, C-EENRG is undertaking a number of projects relative to energy governance, looking in particular at the law of the energy transition; and the energy-food-water nexus.
