Implementing Energy Transitions - Issues and Operational Strategy for Integrative Management, by Jacques de Gerlache

Editions Dunod, February 2019 - 288 Pages

Gaz greenhouse effect, energy production (fossil, renewable, nuclear), transformation, transport or storage: the challenges of the global energy transition are many and varied. So much so that political decision-makers, economists and business leaders often tend to consider them individually.
 
This book proposes an integrative approach to energy transitions, taking into account all the dimensions of these issues. After taking stock of the current energy issues, it explains how all these aspects are intimately linked and why dealing with them independently will only lead to inefficient solutions. He then summarizes them in a global strategy and proposes an operational methodology for implementing action plans, whether at the local, national or international level.
 
Summary of the book :
