About the Author:

MATS LARSSON has worked for twenty years as a business consultant with strategy development, operational efficiency, IT and change management. His experience covers industries as diverse as food and packaging, construction, services (electronic and professional) and high technology. He has worked with companies of all sizes and in all stages of development.

Since 1996, when he started writing the book The Transparent Market about e-business, Larsson has taken a particular interest in emerging business areas. He has studied 'peak oil' and related subjects since 2004 and in a number of analysis projects he has focussed on the organizational and leadership aspects of the change, made a large number of interviews and researched the status of change, relative to the ultimate need, and concluded that in order to succeed, a certain amount of managed change needs to be applied.

Review:

'Most energy analysts and all environmentalists agree on what is needed a comprehensive global transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. But the enormous management problems inherent in this historic shift have seldom been discussed. This is the first book to unpack those management challenges and provide sensible strategies. It should be on the desk of every policy maker in the world. Extremely important.' - Richard Heinberg, Author of The Oil Depletion Protocol, Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute

'This book is the first book I have read that truly points to all the dimensions of the biggest global dilemma we ever have faced in modern time. In the current time of global financial crisis, we need to open up our minds to what it really comes down to, when we want to achieve sustainable changes with full impact. This book is a comprehensive mix of historical examples with today's facts, drilling down to what really is required to handle the situation in a tangible way. The management challenges are examined on all levels, from government to business dimensions, and Larsson points out how to address them in a proper way to reach sustainable results. I can only say get your hands on it if you want to get the full picture!' - David White, Senior Manager, Accenture

'The Swedish Energy Agency is deeply concerned about the high level of energy consumption on our planet and we are actively supporting efforts to increase the awareness of the problem and to investigate ways forward toward an overall reduction of consumption. This important book should be read by all who want to educate themselves on the different aspects of change management of this important global transformation of energy.' - Urban Bergström, Senior Adviser Oil and Gas, Swedish Energy Agency

'This book takes a holistic perspective on the energy challenge - from buildings and city planning to a necessary behavioural change. Larsson points out in an inspiring way not only the challenges and obstacles, but also the solutions and the great business potentials in actually doing the right things for the environment.' - Fredrik Adolfsson, Social& Environmental Manager, IKEA supply chain

'Fossil fuels are finite resources, destined to run out. Alternatives exist, and could soon become replacements for our current energy sources. We all know what needs to be done, and when. What we don't know, is how...In Global Energy Transformation Mats Larsson takes a long, hard look at the numerous management challenges that threaten to derail the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. His analysis, and the resulting roadmap, is essential reading for any decision maker in industry as well as in government.' - Mikael Edholm, Senior Project Leader, Swedish Trade Council, Johannesburg

'This book provides a powerful insight into the global energy market that as a consequence of fossil fuel scarcity and climate change will rapidly transform. It takes you through four possible scenarios and suggests a four step approach to tackle this huge issue. An essential read for those planning a journey to the new carbon critical world.' - Richard F Smith, Technical Director, WS Atkins, Consultants

'One of the first books to provide sensible strategies for moving towards a clean carbon economy. A comprehensive mix of historical examples with contemporary facts.' - Ethical Corporation Magazine
