The Handbook of Global Energy Policy
Handbooks of Global Policy 1. Aufl.
This is the first handbook to provide a global policy perspective on energy, bringing together a diverse range of international energy issues in one volume. Maps the emerging field of global energy policy both for scholars and practitioners; the focus is on global issues, but it also explores the regional impact of international energy policies Accounts for the multi-faceted nature of global energy policy challenges and broadens discussions of these beyond the prevalent debates about oil supply Analyzes global energy policy challenges across the dimensions of markets, development, sustainability, and security, and identifies key global policy challenges for the future Comprises newly-commissioned research by an international team of scholars and energy policy practitioners

“The Handbook of Global Energy Policyprovides a timely reference book for those interested to gain a better understanding of the many issues related to the governance and management of energy policy at the global scale . . . The Handbook, anyway, is a welcome and valuable reference for better understanding energy governance at the global scale.” (Competition and Regulation in Network Industries, 1 October 2014) “Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, research, and professional collections.” (Choice, 1 February 2014)

Recent years have seen energy placed at the top of policy agendas. Against the backdrop of a rise of new consumers such as China and India, climate change and the geopolitical challenges stemming from scarce and unevenly distributed fossil resources, energy policy is now a global concern. The first volume of its kind to provide a global policy perspective on energy, this comprehensive Handbook analyzes the key dimensions of markets, development, sustainability, and security. It maps the emerging field of global energy policy for both scholars and practitioners with a view to broadening the discussion toward cross-sectoral linkages and regional specificities. The volume offers a broad comparison of energy policy challenges faced across the globe by exploring future policy requirements at local, national and international levels. Case studies offer regional perspectives from the viewpoint of major energy producers (Russia, Nigeria, and Brazil), emerging energy consumers (China and India), as well as newly-challenged players (The United States and the European Union). The volume brings together the latest research from an international team of scholars and energy policy practitioners, resulting in an invaluable reference source for this fast-growing field.
"New technologies and social pressures are transforming the world's energy markets. Andreas Goldthau makes sense of this shifting landscape in this invaluable new Handbook on global energy policy. It offers the big picture as well as excellent new essays focused on key topics including oil exploration and production contracts, fiscal regimes for natural resource exporters, and the emerging tensions between food and the production of biofuels. Particularly interesting is the Handbook's treatment of emerging topics in the global natural gas industry and the possible future roles for renewable energy supplies. Throughout it is balanced and well-informed."David Victor, University of California, San Diego
