Bent Sørensen, one of the world’s leading experts in the field of renewable energy systems, explores the current hurdles to the universal adoption of renewable energy sources and proposes solutions to the current situation in this new inspiring work. He discusses the social, political and economic issues that make sustainability seem like such an attainable goal, and explores the ways through which change can be achieved without loss of welfare. Even though the author has written several scientific monographs covering the technical issues behind the energy and social transitions mentioned in this book, and bases his conclusions on solid facts and analysis, Sørensen avoids specialist jargon in this text. He therefore addresses scientists and engineers directly involved in sustainable technologies, as well as energy planners and decision makers in industry and government, and also those interested in the direction in which our societies are moving. This book can be a good basis for discussions and debate, whether in academic or in political circles, and may even be used as complementary reading for students in the field of energy generation, implementation, planning, management, markets and policy. One of the world’s leading experts in renewable energy systems looks into economic, social and political factors that influence the current state of renewable energy implementation in the world. Sørensen examines the reasons why reaching 100% renewable and sustainable energy sources might seem like an unattainable goal, and proposes alternative solutions that would allow the world to proceed towards energy sustainability without losing welfare.

Energy and environmental security are major problems facing our global economy. Fossil fuels, particularly crude oil, are confined to a few regions of the world and the continuity of supply is governed by dynamic political, economic and ecological factors. These factors conspire to force volatile, often high fuel prices while, at the same time, environmental policy is - manding a reduction in greenhouse gases and toxic emissions. Yet incr- sed growth and demand for welfare by developed and developing countries

Rather than simply asserting that all social policies in all capitalist societies exist to maintain capitalism and serve the long-term interests of the capitalist class, PRT examines the nature and impact of social policies and the level and types of social inequality in a variety of advanced capitalist nations.

With the start of the Industrial Revolution in the early 18th century, the value of the term ‘energy’ became more important than ever before. Thus, energy development was considered an integral part of economic development, especially in the industrialised countries and has since then been playing a role as a critical and key factor in the global economy. This paper presents an overview of the renewable energies which are being championed as a potentially significant new source of jobs and

Environmental emission and consumption of energy resources now a day have received substantial attention so far as global sustainable development is concerned. In this regard, purpose of the present book is to investigate general equilibrium implications of international trade and globalization over environmental emission, pattern of energy consumption and social welfare for the Indian economy and recommend necessary policy actions. Computable General Equilibrium(CGE) modelling has been applied as the relevant methodology for the analysis, following Shoven and Whalley (J

Unravelling the intricate relationship between economic development and energy consumption, this book proposes an innovative framework for the empirical investigation of the link between the economy and natural resources. It proposes a novel set of indicators to shed light on those aspects of the economic process and development that determine their requirements in terms of natural resources. Employing updated databases, this book presents tables and diagrams to compare the conventional and the new estimates of the linkage between energy and

The petroleum age began about 150 years ago. Easily available energy has s- ported major advances in agriculture, industry, transportation, and indeed many diverse activities valued by humans. Now world petroleum and natural gas s- plies have peaked and their supplies will slowly decline over the next 40–50 years until depleted. Although small amounts of petroleum and natural gas will remain underground, it will be energetically and economically impossible to extract. In the United States, coal supplies could be available for as

The adoption of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) - such as battery energy storage and rooftop solar - are revolutionizing the topology and operation of the electric grid. When paired with smart control and communication technologies, DERs transform traditional electricity customers into providers of (potentially zero-emission) energy and grid services. Electricity rates - the policies that govern the retail use cases for these technologies - however, lag the technological advances of the modern grid. Retail rates designed in a less technically
