The Global Energy Challenge: Environment, Development and Security
Palgrave Macmillan, Oct. 2015
The book provides a comprehensive overview of today’s three most topical energy challenges, or the “energy trilemma”: climate change, energy poverty and energy security ; it addresses the rise of energy geopolitics and the related concerns surrounding “energy weapons” and the “race for resources” ; the prospect of a low-carbon transition is analyzed in the context of inertia in the energy system and of debates on the role of technology and innovation in addressing energy problems ; the book also considers shifts in global energy governance, such as the emergence of new global institutions, and the role of non-state actors, including business interests, in confronting energy challenge.
