2018 Special Focus: Regeneration, Autonomy, and Sustainability—Productive Technologies and the Green Economy

Where the nineteenth century was powered by coal and steam and the twentieth century powered by oil and gas, the twenty-first century will be powered by renewables—solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, biomass, and ocean tide. Global demand for clean energy technologies is significant, and increasing, with companies like Tesla leading a new generation of green economy technologies and entrepreneurs. What will we consider to be productive technologies, where technologies themselves are generative of broader change? In what ways do we need to imagine social, political and economic infrastructural systems to support a reconstituted notion productivity, based in principles of regeneration, autonomy, and sustainability?
