9780765623829: Energy Policy Analysis: A Conceptual Framework

Presented in nontechnical terms, this book offers a unique and powerful conceptual framework for analysis of energy technologies (standard and alternative) in terms of their respective dollar costs, environmental costs, and national security costs. Energy technologies examined include coal, nuclear, oil, natural gas, solar, wind, geothermal, hydropower, biomass and biogas, energy conservation and efficiency, ocean power, hydrogen, electric power and transmission, and transportation. This three-point framework allows examination of issues and problems associated with implementation of U.S. energy policies in the context of major social goals (such as growth and equity), with treatment of conflicts and trade-offs between energy development and other social values (such as health and safety, cultural, historical, and aesthetic values). These are the key political issues for policy makers formulating national energy policy and decisions makers implementing it.

Review:

"Michael Hamilton has done an excellent job of comparing the economic, environmental, and national security costs of various energy choices; explaining the barriers that have prevented assembling an acceptable mix of energy usages; and analyzing how these impediments may be surmounted, ameliorated, or accommodated. The disparate energy stakeholders will benefit from pondering his work." --Robert Lawrence, Colorado State University

"The author writes clearly throughout and includes high-quality, useful, and impactful illustrations and graphs. ... With the book's strong technical content and lengthy discussions of relevant social and economic issues, it will be very useful to energy policy analysts, development engineers or entrepreneurs, and energy policy makers as well as students in associated disciplines. The author's use of three select cost evaluation categories provides an excellent tool to draw comparisons for articulating effective policy directions. ... Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." --Choice
