By: Paul Osborn
Is access to modern energy a human right? Though few say so openly, who would deny it? How does energy meet basic needs whilst providing the spark for progress and profit? Can it do so more efficiently and equitably? Can modern renewable energy conquer the marketplace - especially the bare bazaar of the poor - in the same way it has won the hearts of environmentalists and the minds of global planners? How does increasing efficiency stem losses of precious energy? How deep are the limits to waste?
"Sustainable Energy: Less Poverty, More Profits" provides worldwide best practices in the use of renewable energies and energy efficiency plans. It responds to demands from policy and decision makers for reliable, profitable models of sustainable energy supply. Examples provide case material and overviews of available options: legal, financial, technical, commercial and social. From the most marginal of modern villages to the maelstroms of modern cities, from the humblest of livelihoods to the most refined research, and from the most frugal of consumers to the most calculating of investors, energy decision makers present in this book their best practices in sustainable energy models.
