Concepts from justice and ethics can significantly inform energy decision-makers. Benjamin K. Sovacool introduces readers to the injustices and insecurities inherent in the global energy system before presenting an energy justice conceptual framework consisting of availability, affordability, due process, good governance, prudence, intergenerational equity, intragenerational equity, and responsibility. He showcases the application of these principles to eight real-world case studies involving national energy planning in Denmark, the Warm Front program in the United Kingdom, the World Bank's Inspection Panel, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, São Tomé e Príncipe's Natural Resource Fund, solar energy in Bangladesh, climate change adaptation efforts in least developed countries, and the Yasuni-ITT Initiative in Ecuador.

About the Author:

Dr. Benjamin K. Sovacool is Visiting Associate Professor at Vermont Law School, USA, where he manages the Energy Security and Justice Program at their Institute for Energy the Environment. He works as a researcher and consultant on issues pertaining to renewable electricity generators and distributed generation, the politics of large-scale energy infrastructure, designing public policy to improve energy security and access to electricity, and building adaptive capacity to the consequences of climate change. He is the author, editor, co-author, or co-editor of 13 books on energy security and climate change issues in addition to hundreds of peer-reviewed academic studies.

Review:

“Sovacool writes with the authority of an expert, has amassed an impressive list of references, and makes his points quantitatively with numerous graphs and tables. ... Overall, Sovacool has presented his readers ... with well-documented ethical challenges stemming from our prodigious energy consumption. Earth would be a better place for all its species if we adhered to Sovacool’s eight principles, and his well-documented case studies point the way.” (Richard Wolfson, Technology and Culture, Vol. 56, April, 2015
