About This Book

This book draws similarity and contrast between country-level policies in transitioning to sustainable energy systems. In thirteen chapters, the book documents vagaries of problem framing and policy responses by nine countries - China, India, the US, Brazil, Malaysia, Laos, Australia, Germany, and France - all of which are guided by recurrent themes of energy transition, policy choices and green economy. The papers in the book show that the transition to clean energy is still at an embryonic stage. As this energy transition involves hard choices politically, economically, and technologically, policymakers and researchers will benefit from comparative lessons drawing across geographical divides. With notes and references.
