About the eBook

Major contemporary issues and debates relating to the sustainable use of energy are addressed in this far-reaching Handbook. The contributing authors discuss the ongoing debates about sustainability and energy use, energy economics, renewable energy, efficiency and climate policy.

New and original chapters from leading academics cover the full spectrum of relevant research including: definitions of sustainability in energy use; consumer behavior and energy markets; the impacts of innovation and new technologies; energy economics and climate modeling; low carbon economies and renewable energies. The authors critically engage with perspectives from developed and developing countries, in the context of both global and regional standpoints.

This Handbook will make a timely and important contribution to the study of energy, climate change and climate economics and will prove essential reading for international researchers in the fields of natural resources, climate change and energy. Students in environmental science faculties, economics departments, business schools and engineering schools will also find this important and enriching compendium insightful. Policy makers in energy and environment ministries and international organizations will also find much topical debate to engage them in this resource.
