This book draws upon the expertise of academic researchers, urban planners and architects to explore the challenge of building the sustainable cities of the future. It addresses this challenge by considering current cities and those of the near future, and creates a picture of the sustainable city from the bottom up.

Energy Security in Europe moves the policy debates on energy security beyond a consideration of its seemingly objective nature. It also provides a series of contributions that shed light on the conditions under which similar material factors are met with very different energy security policies and divergent discourses across Europe…
Chinese Hydropower Development in Africa and Asia explores the governance and socio-economic implications of large Chinese dams’ development in low and middle income countries in Asia and Africa, asking how these big infrastructure projects can promote sustainable local and national development. Chinese overseas investment and hydropower development are topics of increasing interest to scholars from across the development, environment, politics and economics disciplines.
The IEA’s newly renamed Renewables 2017 (formerly titled Medium-Term Renewables Market Report) provides a detailed market analysis and overview of renewable electricity capacity and generation, biofuels production, and heat consumption, as well as a forecast for the period between 2017 and 2022. This year’s report also provides additional analysis on the contribution of electric vehicles to renewable road transport and on the off-grid solar market in Africa and developing Asia.
This book is the 3rd of the series Energy Scenarios and Policy (ESP) designed upon the analogue research programme of the Fondazione Ens Enrico Mattei (FEEM). With this series Claeys & Casteels aims to publish interdisciplinary, scientifically sound, prospective and policy-oriented energy research targeted at political and business decision makers.
Drawing on interviews, participant observation, policy analysis, and survey research, this book unpacks the work of the authorities, electricity companies, and lay persons that keeps energy systems from failing and helps them to recover from disruptions if they occur. The book explores a number of important issues: the historical security policy of energy infrastructures; control rooms where electricity is traded and maintained in real time; and electricity consumers in their homes. Presenting case studies from Finland and Scandinavia, with comparisons to the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union at large, Making Electricity Resilient offers a detailed and innovative analysis of long-term priorities and short-term dynamics in energy risk and resilience.
With a specific focus on energy supply, this book provides a succinct account of China’s energy policy over the last sixty years. Using separate chapters dedicated to each energy sub-sector, Chi-Jen Yang introduces and discusses both the achievements and failures of the Chinese energy systems, as well as the strengths and insufficiencies of energy governance in China.
La société moderne est confrontée à des objectifs a priori contradictoires : satisfaire une demande croissante en énergie pour assurer la croissance économique à 10 milliards de personnes, tout en réduisant les émissions de GES pour solutionner le problème du dérèglement climatique…
Le stockage de l’électricité sous toutes ses formes est au cœur de la transition énergétique et de la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique…
The book argues that a variety of policies will be required to create synergies between the water-energy-food nexus sectors while reducing trade-offs in the development of a green economy.
