Green Energy Economies offers insight into the major drivers that are shaping a new future powered by clean energy sources. Assembling cutting-edge researchers as contributors, the book provides a comprehensive account of the shift underway, examining in detail the complexities and intricacies involved with such a transition.

The book first details the promises and problems of a green energy transition. Next, it explores the economic benefits that a comprehensive strategy toward a green energy economy might create. Then it investigates how communities will be affected and explores the social, cultural, and other changes that are likely to result. Finally, it explores the shift toward new technologies in-depth. Green Energy Economies concludes with policy options that support a transition to a better energy, environmental, and economic future.

The contributors argue that a green energy economy offers great promise, but its realization will require making hard choices, and soon. They argue for investments in renewable energy and economic systems that can deliver a sustainable and equitable future. This book makes a forceful case for a green future.

About the Author:

John Byrne is distinguished professor of energy and climate policy and director of the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy (CEEP) at the University of Delaware. He is also chairman of the board of the Foundation for Renewable Energy and Environment. He has contributed since 1992 to Working Group III of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with the panel’s authors. He is editor of Transaction’s book series Energy and Environmental Policy.

Review:

“Editors Byrne and Wang (both, Univ. of Delaware) have assembled cutting-edge contributors who argue that a green energy economy offers great promise, but its realization will require making hard choices, and soon. . . . to assess our policy options, we need to understand the technology.  The second half of this book speaks to this need superbly and authoritatively; it contains exquisite chapters on green cities, building efficiency, transportation, solar cells, electricity storage, fuel cells, nuclear power, and the smart grid.  These chapters could be on the reading lists for courses and programs in environmental policy. . . . Recommended.”

—T. Brennan, Choice

Green Energy Economics: The Search for Clean and Renewable Energy gathers under one cover researchers who contribute studies examining the transition to green energy, and who cover its economic benefits and impact. Contributors argue that a green energy economy offers promises but much struggle, and they maintain that investments in renewable energy and economic systems are long-term goals promising both a green future and many profits.”
