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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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
