Résumé
This paper combines a multi-sectoral approach with a perspective on the geography of transitions.
The concept of coevolution is used to bridge these contributions as it allows to see mutual influences
and adaptation between sectors while acknowledging spatial embeddedness and its
economic, institutional and social aspects. The argument is discussed using the case of the
transition to Electric Vehicles (EVs) and the connections between three technologies: EV, battery,
and smart grid. Patent citations are used to construct three main paths allowing to geolocate key
inventions and to elaborate on the role of cities in supporting knowledge recombination. The case
study suggests that a coevolutionary perspective can contribute to understanding the geography
of transitions in three ways: by relating emerging socio-technical configurations to changed
power relations and opportunities along the value chain, by exposing the spatial embeddedness of
interdependent sectors and by clarifying the role of actors and networks.
