Designing Climate Solutions

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

With the effects of climate change already upon us, the need to cut global greenhouse gas emissions is nothing less thanurgent. It's a daunting challenge, but the technologies and strategies to meet it exist today. A small set of energy policies,designed and implemented well, can put us on the path to a low carbon future. Energy systems are large and complex, soenergy policy must be focused and cost-effective. One-size-fits-all approaches simply won't get the job done.Policymakers need a clear, comprehensive resource that outlines the energy policies that will have the biggest impact onour climate future, and describes how to design these policies well.Designing Climate Solutions: A Policy Guide for Low-Carbon Energy is the first such guide, bringing together the latestresearch and analysis around low carbon energy solutions. Written by Hal Harvey, CEO of the policy firm EnergyInnovation, with Robbie Orvis and Jeffrey Rissman of Energy Innovation, Designing Climate Solutions is an accessibleresource on lowering carbon emissions for policymakers, activists, philanthropists, and others in the climate and energycommunity. In Part I, the authors deliver a roadmap for understanding which countries, sectors, and sources produce thegreatest amount of greenhouse gas emissions, and give readers the tools to select and design efficient policies for each ofthese sectors. In Part II, they break down each type of policy, from renewable portfolio standards to carbon pricing, offering key design principles and case studies where each policy has been implemented successfully.We don't need to wait for new technologies or strategies to create a low carbon future-and we can't afford to. DesigningClimate Solutions gives professionals the tools they need to select, design, and implement the policies that can put us onthe path to a livable climate future
