The relationship between energy and the environment has been the basis of many studies over the years, as has the relationship between energy and development, yet both of these approaches may produce distortions. This is the first book to study all three elements in relation to one another. Disaggregating national populations by income and by how different income groups consume energy, Professor Goldemberg identifies the differences between local, regional and global environmental impacts, and can thus ascertain who is responsible for them.
Beginning with an overview of the concepts of energy, as well as economists' views of development, Energy, Environment and Development then goes on to describe current energy-related problems of environmental degradation, looking at their causes and technical solutions. Finally, it discusses general and specific policies to promote sustainable development in energy. Written in a technical yet accessible style, the book is aimed at students on a range of courses, as well as non-energy specialists who desire an overview of recent thought in the area.
