The Geopolitics of Renewables
English | 2018 | ISBN: 331967854X | 338 Pages | PDF | 10.6 MB
Renewables are a game changer for interstate energy relations. Their abundance and intermittency, possibilities for decentral generation and use of rare earth materials, and generally electric nature of transportation make them very different from fossil fuels. What do these geographic and technical characteristics of renewable energy systems imply for infrastructure topology and operations, business models, and energy markets? What are the consequences for the strategic realities and policy considerations of producer, consumer, and transit countries and energy-related patterns of cooperation and conflict between them? Who are the winners and losers?
The Geopolitics of Renewables is the first in-depth exploration of the implications for interstate energy relations of a transition towards renewable energy. Fifteen international scholars combine insights from several disciplines – international relations, geopolitics, energy security, renewable energy technology, economics, sustainability transitions, and energy policy – to establish a comprehensive overview and understanding of the emerging energy game.Download: http://longfiles.com/8d9pvceba3sw/The_Geopolitics_of_Renewables.rar.html
