The energy justice framework allows us to consider the ways in which fairness and equity should be at the heart of our efforts to re-balance the energy trilemma . As energy scholars, we are acutely mindful of the energy transition from high- to low-carbon technologies. This chapter sets out six key considerations for those involved in driving energy decisions and research, including government, business, research organisations, charities and individuals. They correspond directly to the three dimensions of energy justice—distribution , recognition and procedures —as well as the central issues of availability , accessibility and sustainability . Reflections on all six help us to develop a better picture of how energy policy should develop in the future. It then concludes with some indications on fruitful future research opportunities.
