Abstract This paper reviews and analyzes the challenges of energy transition governance towards a low-carbon society as a political achievement. The main research question is how specific -transition governance approaches- as advocated by transition theory can be embedded-anchored in the policy-making logics and practices. We analyze three country cases, known for their path-breaking efforts in the area: Germany due to its pioneering role in the development and diffusion of renewable energy technologies, the Netherlands due to its pioneering role in launching the transition management framework, and the United Kingdom due to its pioneering role in adopting a long-term legislative commitment to a low-carbon future. The paper identifies best governance practices and remaining challenges in the following areas: i connecting long-term visions with short- and mid-term action; ii innovation technological as well as social; iii integration of multiple objectives and policy areas and levels; iv societal engagement; and v learning-reflexivity.
