About this book

Despite global concerns over dwindling resources, climate change and carbon dioxide emissions, fossil fuels still account for more than 80% of the world's energy demands. As resources diminish and demand increases from rapidly developing nations such as China and India, the threat to both our environment and the security of our energy supply continues to grow. There is an immediate need to move towards a clean and more sustainable energy model, and this transition will require unprecedented innovation.

"Energy & Climate: How to Achieve a Successful Energy Transition" covers all the technology options available and summarises key information from the International Energy Agency and other leading organisations, providing a detailed technological roadmap for this transition which aims to avoid both ecological and economic disaster.

Written and translated by the former Director for Sustainable Development at IFP, this book is an essential introduction for scientists and researchers working in energy and climate-related topics as well as all those interested in how to manage a sustainable energy supply while still reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions.

Biography

Dr Alexandre Rojey was, until recently, Director for Sustainable Development at IFP (Institut Francais du Petrole) in France, responsible for new developments in the energy sector such as the use of hydrogen, long term energy supply and issues related to global climate change including CO2 capture and storage. He is also the Chairman of CEDIGAZ, an international association in the area of natural gas, and an active member of IDe Es (for Innovation, Developpement durable, Energie et Societe), a think tank concerned with energy and sustainable development in France.

Media reviews

This is an interesting concise resume of the current situation but I am not clear why the (British) Society for Chemical Industry has decided to support it. The references are up-to-date but over half are in French, a fact not likely to appeal to monoglot Anglophones.
- Chromatographia, July 2010

"One of the biggest problems faced when trying to communicate the scale of the issues facing global energy supply in the coming years is that there are so many of them. [...] That this book manages to cover all these issues in just over 150 pages, and remain[s] accessible and interesting is a great compliment to Rojey's skill as a writer."
