MEDIA REVIEWS

"The EU energy and climate package of 2008 is a milestone in climate and energy policy that has firmly established Europe's leadership in this critical field. As we discuss our new policy framework beyond 2020, this book is a very timely contribution for practitioners and scholars alike. It captures well how the European Commission reconciled the necessary with the politically achievable when proposing the 2008 package." - J.M. Barroso, President of the European Commission

"A meticulous study of the world's first attempt to set up a large-scale carbon trading system to reduce CO2 emissions. It will be of interest not only to students of the politics of climate change and the governance of the EU, but to those initiating or contemplating parallel programmes in other parts of the world today"- Anthony Giddens, author of The Politics of Climate Change

"This book provides important new insights into internal Commission dynamics in the issue area of climate change. I warmly recommend it." - Jorgen Wettestad, Fridtjof Nansen Institute, Norway

"The volume is rich with inspiration for the IPE community no doubt it will spur new directions in theorising on energy governance, as it explicitly aspires to do." - Europe-Asia Studies

"Readers from the energy industry although they are not Dreger's target audience can learn a lot from the book and better understand many details of the ETS and the renewables Directive ... this book is certainly a major contribution to political and organizational science and offers many insights in the dynamics of decision-making." - European Energy Journal
