Much has been written recently on the relationship between energy and the environment, as well as between energy and development. Yet to study these separately gives only a partial, distorted picture. In the first edition of this book, Professor Goldemberg pioneered the study of all three elements in relation to one another.
With contributions from Oswaldo Lucon, this second edition has been expanded and updated. The book starts by examining energy, relating it to human activities, to existing natural resources and to development indicators. Disaggregating national populations by income and by how different income groups consume energy, the authors identify the differences between local, regional and global environmental impacts, and can thus ascertain who is responsible for them. Finally, they discuss general and specific policies to promote sustainable development in energy.
"Energy, Environment and Development" is the result of many years of study and practical experience in policy formulation, discussion and implementation in these fields by the authors. Written in a technical yet accessible style, the book is aimed at students on a range of courses, as well as non-energy specialists who desire an overview of recent thought in the area.
