Abstract

Internet facilitates connections between a range of actors with a stake in the energy transition, including governments, environmental organizations, media outlets and corporations. These connections tease a hyperlink network affecting publics access to the information on energy transition issues. Despite its societal relevance, however, the characteristics of this network remain understudied. We present the results of a methodology we developed to study the Dutch energy transition hyperlink network. Our data shows the existence of a highly centralized network -with few authorities- in which the debate about the energy transition revolves around a reduced
number of topics.
