'This book provides an essential guide to the challenges facing the power sector, but is equally enlightening to other industrial emitters, policy-makers and non-governmental organizations.' Charles Nicholson, Group Senior Advisor, BP The electricity industry is one of the main contributors of carbon to the atmosphere. Reducing these emissions is critical to achieving international targets and mitigating climate change.
