Book Description :

Analytical Methods for Energy Diversity and Security is an ideal volume for professionals in academia, industry and government interested in the rapidly evolving area at the nexus between energy and climate change policy. The cutting-edge international contributions allow for a wide coverage of the topic. Analytical Methods for Energy Diversity and Security focuses on the consideration of financial risk in the energy sector. It describes how tools borrowed from financial economic theory, in particular mean-variance portfolio theory, can provide insights on the costs and benefits of diversity, and thus inform investment decision making in conditions of uncertainty. It gives the reader an in-depth understanding of how to manage risk at a time when the world’s focus is on this area. The book provides insights from leading authorities in the area of energy security. It gives readers abundant, rigorous analysis and guidance at a critical time in facing the twin challenges of energy security and climate change. The book also highlights the role of clean energy technology in moving towards future diverse and intelligent electricity systems. It will be a trusted, first point of reference for decision-makers in the field of energy policy. The book includes a foreword by the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize winner. All royalties from sale of this book will be donated to charities working in the energy sector in the developing world. Theoretical underpinning and applied use of Portfolio theory in the energy sector In-depth consideration of risk Contributions from leading international energy economists Innovative methodologies for thinking about energy security and diversity

Book Description :

Addressing the major issues associated with green energy and energy efficiency, this book examines the economics of energy from the theoretical as well as applied perspectives. It makes a valuable contribution to existing discussion around environment and climate change issues, and provides an analysis of the socioeconomic and policy-oriented aspects of this topic. Each chapter is self-contained and tackles the fundamental issues and latest developments of a particular sub-topic. Combining rigour and accessibility, this book allows non-specialized readers to understand the complexity of the topic, and to likewise access the most relevant and up-to-date literature. It simultaneously enables more specialized readers to broaden their understanding of complex energy topics and it provides a comprehensive overview of the cutting-edge developments of the issues covered by the book. This book covers important themes including regulation for green energy, the promotion of green energy and efficiency, the challenges and options of renewable energy, and efficiency in economic sectors. It is intended for researchers and postgraduates with an interest in energy, climate change and environmental economics, and also policymakers and energy companies.

Book Description :

Electricity supply security has received increased attention in both academic literature and relevant policy debate. There is, however, limited discussion about the role of the key actors of the electricity sector and their engagement with security concepts. This research explores the security performance of individual fuel and technology options, focusing on the perceptions of energy policy makers and electricity incumbents towards these options and their main drivers. Energy policy makers and electricity industry experts from incumbent companies in Greece and Poland were interviewed using Multi Criteria Mapping (MCM) to rank options against specific criteria based on quantitative and qualitative input. In addition a new index was developed to quantify electricity supply security as a measure of supply independence. Established energy diversity indices (Shannon- Wiener and Herfindahl- Hirschman) were also calculated. Recent trends in diversity and independence were contrasted with results from the interviews. It was found that low carbon energy options, wind energy, nuclear, hydro and biomass were considered the most secure options by interviewees in Greece. In Poland the first options included the dominant solid fuels, and renewable energy options such as wind energy, hydro power and biomass. However, in Greece, wind was followed by other low-carbon energy options: hydropower, biomass and nuclear. Interviewees did not use analytical frameworks when appraising options and were reluctant to suggest specific criteria for the MCM design. However, when using criteria their training background influenced their choices significantly. The significant differences between the two countries were that: Polish interviewees valued affordability higher than Greek interviewees; diversity was more important to Greek experts; and independence was more important to Polish experts. The findings in Poland suggesting that the status quo was not challenged are consistent with the expectation that the policy preferences serve incumbent interests. It was recommended that the .potential benefits of analytical methods for evaluating energy supply security should be explored further. Finally, fuel mix influencing decisions should be informed by experts of varied backgrounds in order to include all (often mutually contrasting) perspectives. d.

Book Description :

The global energy system faces urgent challenges. Concerns about energy security are growing, as highlighted by the recent political turmoil in Northern Africa and the nuclear incident in Fukushima. At the same time, the need to respond to climate change is more critical than ever. Against this background, many governments have increased efforts to promote deployment of renewable energy - low-carbon sources that can strengthen energy security. This has stimulated unprecedented rise in deployment, and renewables are now the fastest growing sector of the energy mix. This "coming of age" of renewable energy also brings challenges. Growth is focused on a few of the available technologies, and rapid deployment is confined to a relatively small number of countries. In more advanced markets, managing support costs and system integration of large shares of renewable energy in a time of economic weakness and budget austerity has sparked vigorous political debate.

Book Description :

Regulation & Investments in Energy Markets: Solutions for the Mediterranean presents the status of advancement and maturity of the Mediterranean energy policy, identifying patterns of development as well as lessons learned. Mediterranean countries are facing unprecedented challenges in the energy sector which affect the entire region. Energy policy and regulation is the key to tackling energy efficiency challenges, and providing favorable conditions for engineering infrastructures, investments, and improving security of energy supply. The assumption that the normative model, on which the EC energy policy is based, could be adopted outside EU boundaries has proven to be difficult to implement. This book looks at the Mediterranean regions search for a revised model for regulatory convergence and provides answers to those research questions, allowing the reader to understand the different technical, institutional, and financial frameworks for energy policy. Contains a detailed overview of the specificities and institutional frameworks, giving greater clarity on existing energy practice Provides recommendations and contributions from leading scholars and key players in energy policy research Presents information from a region wide interdisciplinary approach based on specific industry information
