About this title


Meier (chief economist of International Development and Energy Associates, Switzerland) and Munasinghe (chairman of the Munasinghe Institute of Development and chief energy advisor to the Government of Sri Lanka) present the second in a series that also includes The Sustainability of Long Term Growth (Munasinghe et al., 2001) and Macroeconomic Policies for Sustainable Growth (Munasinghe et al., 2005). Using case studies from Sri Lanka and other countries, it highlights issues and problems of sustainable energy development including choice of power generation technologies; economic, environmental, social, political, and technical dimensions of power plant siting; institutional reform for the privatization of state-owned energy organizations; declining investment in public transport at a time of growing uses of private vehicles; and implication of global climate change for national strategies of sustainable energy development.
