Rapid Switch

Program Director

Rapid Switch is a research community involving political science, other applied social and behavioral science, and economics to expand and deepen and understanding of pathways to decarbonization.

Led by Princeton University’s Andlinger Center for the Energy and the Environment, the research network seeks to identify viable decarbonization opportunities using existing technologies while acknowledging regional technological, social, political, and economic constraints. In a series of reports, the researchers will identify roadblocks and unintended consequences that could slow the deployment and scale up of more sustainable technologies with an eye to address these potential bottlenecks before they arise.
