Learning from Wind Power Governance, Societal and Policy Perspectives on Sustainable Energy

Learning from Wind Power Governance, Societal and Policy Perspectives on Sustainable Energy

By: Dr Joseph Szarka (editor), Peter A. Strachan (editor), Charles Warren (editor), Geraint Ellis (editor), Richard Cowell (editor)eBook


Energy has always been important for human societies, but across the world energy issues are now being given unprecedented priority by governments, communities and citizens. The challenges permeate many spheres: technical, economic, social, political, institutional and environmental. Although other so-called 'new renewables' were under development when the policy push for renewable energy sources began in earnest, wind power was already at a sufficiently advanced stage to be the primary technology of choice. Focusing on the influential roles of governance, policy and social acceptance, this provides a state-of-the-art synthesis of research on the deployment of wind power. With chapters from leading researchers in a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, it provides a comprehensive and authoritative account of the key issues facing the deployment of wind power, and uses these insights to identify important lessons for the future expansion of other renewable energy technologies and the wider transition to sustainable energy.
