Global Energy Assessment Toward a Sustainable Future


Global Energy Assessment Toward a Sustainable Future by Global Energy Assessment Writing Team

The Global Energy Assessment (GEA) brings together over 300 international researchers to provide an independent, scientifically based, integrated and policy-relevant analysis of current and emerging energy issues and options. It has been peer-reviewed anonymously by an additional 200 international experts. The GEA assesses the major global challenges for sustainable development and their linkages to energy; the technologies and resources available for providing energy services; future energy systems that address the major challenges; and the policies and other measures that are needed to realize transformational change toward sustainable energy futures. The GEA goes beyond existing studies on energy issues by presenting a comprehensive and integrated analysis of energy challenges, opportunities and strategies, for developing, industrialized and emerging economies. This volume is an invaluable resource for energy specialists and technologists in all sectors (academia, industry and government) as well as policymakers, development economists and practitioners in international organizations and national governments.


'This book comprehensively reviews energy production and use and places significant emphasis on social value, environmental impacts, economics, and sustainability. A state-of-the-art assessment of the science of energy, well illustrated with figures and tables, it explores 40 pathways that meet several social and environmental goals, including worldwide access to modern energy services ... This book offers great content for a wide audience because of the central role of energy throughout the world ... Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.'
L. E. Erickson, Choice
