For a fair energy transition, a lever for social cohesionToo often, when reflecting on the energy transition, the social dimension has been left aside. Taking this dimension into account leads to a change in perspective and to considering the energy transition as an industrial transformation. This leads to new proposals: systematically performing a dual employment-carbon assessment, developing transition industries in France, implementing a redistributive policy, investing more in Africa and in developing countries. Two shifts in the way of considering the energy transition thus appear to be decisive: to act on the supply side as a priority without making consumers feel guilty; to take into account the needs of developing countries and admit that this is where a large part of the climate challenge is played out.
