The Greening of Energy Policies

By Miriam Kennet (UK) and Ryota Koike (Japan)

ISBN 9781907543326

Green Economics and Energy Policy. This is an introduction for the general reader who wants to understand green economics and also the latest thinking about energy in one easy to read volume.

Working in the context of post Fukushima (Japan) and Chernobyl(Ukraine) as well as the Institute which created the academic discipline of Green Economics,(UK), this book provides a completely new round up of the current state of innovation in energy policy and life style changes for the success of all of us in the 21st century and our survivability.

It introduces the reader to the important and innovative state of the art developments and aspects of both Green Economics and the measures being used to combat climate change and to meet the challenges of an increasing global population whilst at the same time changing life styles, using technology and policy and regulation.Green Economics has emerged as a counterpart to mainstream orthodox economics.

Having seen the main-stream economics failure in connecting nature and human activities there have been countless problems emerging, which harm the people and marginalize the poor around the world.

As a result, Green Economics has developed its entirely new and exciting discipline or school of economics. Green Economics is based on a different ethics about economics and takes alternative and innovative perspectives on the global issues, suggesting new options and solutions affordable to society in the age of resource scarcity and global climate change. As business-as-usual approach dominates the mainstream, the world is facing unseen problems which have not been previously witnessed in our history. The global population has reached 7 billion and is likely to reach 8.5 billion by 2050 and global electricity demand is expected to increase by 80% by 2040, which exceeds the ecological carrying capacity.

Having acknowledged the situation, this book aims to provide focus on the issues raised by current energy policies with a diverse group of researchers from around the world. The book also examines the risks of nuclear energy and suggests a blueprint for a transition to a low carbon society by developing renewable energy. It helps illustrate the way of re-examining such costly energy policies and dangerous nuclear disaster scenario.
