Improving the Energy Policymaking Process and Integration of Sustainability Metrics into Decision-Making

Improving the Energy Policymaking Process and Integration of Sustainability Metrics into Decision-Making

Summary of the Topic

The topic explores the energy policymaking process, which outlines the various perspectives of address the climate change effects across the world. The energy policymaking process encompasses the strategies for enhancing the economic and social wellbeing of citizens in developing and developed nations (Kaya et al., 2019). The process seeks to build a more robust, cleaner, and fairer environment than the current circumstances created by irresponsible human actions. Countries adopt strategies and create forums for sharing experiences, evaluating, and implementing solutions to the energy problems in readiness for social, economic, and environmental changes (Howells et al., 2013). The energy policymaking process will cover the key sustainability pillars such as the society, environment, and economy alongside their role in influencing the policies for achieving the set sustainability outcomes. However, nations have not taken the deliberate problem solving despite the obvious climate change threat (Dermont et al., 2017). The policymaking process remains an iterative and cyclical activity whose agenda as well as content varies across the global economy.

The integration of the various sustainability metrics into the decision-making around energy policymaking is an important discourse. The key metrics for consideration include greenhouse gas emissions, water use, water pollution, energy-generation mix, and waste generation (Jacob-Lopes, 2021; Cabezas & Diwekar, 2012). The sustainability metrics underline the extent of climate risk, carbon emissions, and energy consumptions, which could reveal the direct detriment to the environment. Therefore, the sustainability metrics guide decision-making process based on the effectiveness and impact of the existing policies. The topic prompts a discussion on the internal and external processes by countries to measure as well as improve their sustainability performance besides the revising the existing energy policymaking framework.


  1. Energy Policymaking Process at the Global Level
    1. Sovacool (2013) examined the policymaking process in Denmark following its transition into wind energy technology as opposed to imported oil and coal in 1970s
    2. Blanchet (2015) recognized the grassroot challenges of maintaining the effectiveness of a local energy system in Berlin besides influencing the implementation of a visionary local energy transition
    3. Kuzemko (2013) explained the energy relations between the European Union (EU) and Russia to understand the divergent concepts or perspectives’ impact on the policymaking process
    4. Littlefield (2013) recognized the complexity of the energy policymaking process as a critical and intricate phase in the US considering conflicting issues of taxation, regulations, and technology promotion
  2. Energy Policymaking Process in Saudi Arabia
    1. Salam and Khan (2017) studied the investment of Saudi Arabian government in the ambitious 41Giga Watt solar installation project to underline transition on clean energy
    2. Mansouri et al. (2013) recognized companies and electricity sector in Saudi Arabia as part of the policymaking process as the countries projects to curb the emissions with solar photovoltaic technologies by 2025
    3. According to Mujeebu and Alshamrani (2016), Saudi Arabia has taken policy-level measures increased public awareness, and invested the best technologies to match global trends in energy conservation as well as management
  • Sustainability Metrics in Decision-Making
    1. Shortall and Davidsdottir (2017) interviewed decision-makers in Iceland and found varying relevance of using efficiency, energy security, renewables, energy affordability, and equity as the best metrics
      1. Challenges of misalignment with the sustainable development principles, lack of methodological transparency, and inappropriateness limited Iceland’s application of the metrics
    2. According to Akadiri et al. (2019), Italy’s environmental sustainability process needed globalization, income, and the energy to develop appropriate or balanced conservation policies
    3. Ren and Sovacool (2014) used a brief Chinese case study to generate energy metrics such as security, affordability, and availability compelled energy security approaches as well as policies

Journal and quote book (My teeth) –

There should be two separate parts.
first, I would like for you to write 250-500 words using the following Questions as prompts. This will be over the first half of Story of My Teeth (not the whole story)
a. What are the narrative devices that the author uses to move the story forward?
b. What important “things” are there in this novel. What is their use to the story teller?
**There are only two prompts this time. I’d like for you to explore one of them a bit further than you’ve done in the past. I would look at how the teeth in the novel are working perhaps (although you could look at other things). Remember to think of the novel as a narrative machine and the teeth as a vital driving part. I should read your journal and think “Oh, so that is what the teeth are doing”. Try to come up with something interesting, something new, something that is not obvious. Remember that I don’t want you to think only on about plot (the teeth are there because without them X event wouldn’t happen). Think bigger. Maybe you could build a sophisticated metaphor or simile? The Teeth in Story of My Teeth as _______________.
Remember that I need for you to develop your ideas. Your journal entries should show insight. They should be written clearly, be well structured (topic sentences, paragraph structure, conclusion language, etc), refer to the text appropriately, and have a level of analysis. Are you answering HOW the story is getting the job done? Are you quoting? I do not want plain summary. Analysis is key.
These ONLY are starting places for your journal. DEVELOP them as you write. These are not simple response questions. In addition to strong writing, I will grade on your insights and “big ideas”. You do not have to answer all three questions for each story. Remember this is not a straight quiz, you are not just “filling in the blanks” for the questions and trying to find the “right” answer. Focus on what you find interesting. Make sure you are providing an argument. Make sure you support it.
Second page is quote book.
Perhaps look for things governing objects in the novel? There are the teeth for sure, but are there any other objects that are imbued with “power”? What are the things in this novel that are unique to it? That are absolutely necessary?
Maybe look for powerful objects as this would be interesting to find in other novels too (for that paper you’d be examining the roles that the various objects play). I would think that you could look for ideas of fate also. Or even how the objects intersect with fate!
Your quote book will be in 3 parts.
1. Stated theme. This must me a sentence or two that explains what the theme is that you will be looking for. Please tell me WHY you think this theme is important. I will be looking for that word BECAUSE.
2. Copy and pasting of 5 quotes. Your quotes must be selected from the entirety of the reading (not all of it can come from the first pages, etc). These should be a few sentences long, there will need to be enough context to understand them. It is important that these quotes seem relevant. This is how I grade that you have indeed read the work. YOU MUST PROVIDE PAGES OR LOCATION NUMBERS
3. A single paragraph that that tells me HOW the quotes show your your theme. I also would like a sentence telling me which story did the BEST job of showing the theme and why. There should also be introduction and conclusion language in this paragraph. You should touch on why finding these themes is important.

Contemporary architectural space and form as an expression of cultural ideology –

Contemporary architectural space and form as an expression of cultural ideology
Write a brief, well edited paragraph describing a research direction/project related to your current design project. This requires outlining what you understand your studio task to be about, and specific foci you wish to bring to it, or anticipate will be critical.
For ADS_10, you may have already established themes that you want to test in new ways alongside your studio development, for example zoomorphic analogies or indexical parametric modelling of architecture, that to date have only been applied expediently to producing your ADS_9 project, but you are aware of the gaps in your process or understanding. Or for those interested in the How Soon is Now option, there may be obvious issues of say, Australian modernism, temporality in architecture or curatorial practices. A word of caution: keep the focus narrow and specific rather than too general. Aim for depth rather than breadth, and rigour rather than ambition in the available time.
What is your topic?
Name a practitioner, architect, artist, film-maker, writer, project who is really relevant to this? Whose physical work + process you can look at?
List as least 3 key sources relating to your intentions.
Your outline should be reasonably direct about what you think you are going to do. Dont just describe an area of interest you must try and describe some defined limits that make this potentially a research topic + how the proposal relates to studio themes.
A traditional approach which you will already be familiar with from AADRM is to frame a research approach by posing the questions: what, how, why, who, where, when?
