The editors have assembled 15 articles by experts which examine the problems of this country's energy policy, and the confusion which surrounds the issues. Beginning with the crisis of 1970, the articles selected discuss current energy issues, what policy attempts have been made to solve them, and what the future implications of such policies might be. The book explores the complexity of energy in many contexts: global and national, political, economic, and intergovernmental, to name a few. Articles also touch on alternative and nuclear energy issues.
Energy. Debate. Many factors have prompted the debate over which energy source should be used. Some experts argue that there is a dire need to shift from
fossil fuel use to renewable and alternative energy use. This section examines

Bent Sørensen, one of the world’s leading experts in the field of renewable energy systems, explores the current hurdles to the universal adoption of renewable energy sources and proposes solutions to the current situation in this new inspiring work. He discusses the social, political and economic issues that make sustainability seem like such an attainable goal, and explores the ways through which change can be achieved without loss of welfare. Even though the author has written several scientific monographs covering the technical issues behind the energy and social transitions mentioned in this book, and bases his conclusions on solid facts and analysis, Sørensen avoids specialist jargon in this text. He therefore addresses scientists and engineers directly involved in sustainable technologies, as well as energy planners and decision makers in industry and government, and also those interested in the direction in which our societies are moving. This book can be a good basis for discussions and debate, whether in academic or in political circles, and may even be used as complementary reading for students in the field of energy generation, implementation, planning, management, markets and policy. One of the world’s leading experts in renewable energy systems looks into economic, social and political factors that influence the current state of renewable energy implementation in the world. Sørensen examines the reasons why reaching 100% renewable and sustainable energy sources might seem like an unattainable goal, and proposes alternative solutions that would allow the world to proceed towards energy sustainability without losing welfare.

Energy will be a most important topic in the 1980s. The speed with which a dozen or more trends will develop will be critical. Most of these trends are interdependent and interacting, and include: - the degree of constraint on oil and gas supplies exercised by the producers, whether inside or outside the OPEC, as they each attempt to match produc tion to their own energy needs and the funding of their own economic growth from exports, - the depth of the appreciation by industrialized countries that energy supplies will be tight and fossil fuels will be very expensive at least until the end of the century, - the actions taken by those countries to ameliorate this situation, in exploration for new oil and gas sources, in exploitation effort for new coal supplies, in acceptance ofthe need for expansion ofnuclear energy supplies, - the balancingofenergy supply and demand in centrally-planned economies, - the rate ofdevelopment within developing countries, including China, - the development and adoption ofunconventional energy sources, - the adaptation ofthe world fmancial system to new situations. These examples highlight some of the continuing problems in the energy field. These problems will be discussed in all sorts ofmeetings of all sorts ofpeople in all sorts of places and through all forms of the communication media. Other trends will materialize and take the centre of the stage, often only for a short time.

Australia¿s energy system is undergoing major transformation, driven by economic, environmental and engineering factors. Consumer preferences are also changing as we seek greater independence and control over our electricity supply through smart meters, solar panels, battery storage and electric vehicles. Most of Australia¿s energy supply still heavily relies on its traditional, non-renewable resources of coal, oil and gas ¿ yet Australia has plentiful clean energy renewable resources including solar, wind, geothermal, bioenergy, wave and tidal power. We also have the world¿s largest reserves of uranium to rely on ¿ should we ever decide to choose controversial nuclear power as part of our energy mix. A secure supply of affordable, reliable and environmentally sustainable energy is essential to the nation¿s future growth and prosperity.

With the pursuit of a sustainable global pattern of energy supply and use, it has been widely acknowledged that renewable energy sources must play a key role. This report presents and compares the definitions of renewable energy source, highlights the complexity of the debate on renewable energy, including the core controversial issue on targets, and discusses what Nordic experiences can contribute to removing existing barriers and promoting the use of modern renewable energy sources.
