New book explores interwoven areas of energy, environment and the economy
A new book co-edited by York University Professor Hassan Qudrat-Ullah and Muhammad Asif from Glasgow Caledonian University addresses the vital and interwoven areas of energy, environment and the economy within the field of sustainability research.
Dynamics of Energy, Environment and Economy: A Sustainability Perspective (Springer, 2020) explores issues such as energy security, depleting fossil fuel reserves, novel energy technologies and climate change, as well as the dynamic global response from the perspective of policy, technology and economics.
“Unified by the common goal of making better decisions in the sustainable production and consumption of energy, this book provides unique and innovative insights and modeling-based solutions for sustainable energy policy design and assessment,” said Qudrat-Ullah. “Innovation solutions to a variety of issues in dealing with energy-environment-economy interaction are provided with a focus on energy availability, adequacy, affordability and acceptability.”
According to the authors, the book examines successful integrative solutions in the discourse on complex climate change and energy dynamics; includes methods, techniques and perspectives for socio-economic and environmentally oriented energy supply systems; and features “sustainability insights” including novel solutions for sustainable performance through energy production and consumption systems.
The text will serve as reference book for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, academics, policy makers, NGOs and developmental sector professionals within related fields.
