Big Problem Perspectives Working Group

Forum for Innovation in New Energy (FINE)

FINE focuses on needs, contexts, facts and issues of next generation innovation in the changing worlds of renewable energy, in both developed and developing nations and including attention to the interplay with critical issues in water and health management. New Energy exemplifies the class of “wicked innovation problems” requiring decision-making under very complex, uncertain and ambiguous conditions.

The Forum stimulates discussion among participants from a number of global regions and from a wide range of disciplines and sectors, including academia and industry, which might not normally be involved or focused on the energy domain but could have important insights.
