At a time of increasingly alarming climate change and the global will among nearly every nation on earth to halt the path of global warming, renewables are at the forefront of the fight against it. After the COP21 Paris UNFCC Climate Summit, there is increasing interest in the potential of renewables to really help us move away from fossil fuels and to reorientate our energy and our economy towards a completely new direction. This book provides the non specialist reader with information about what renewables are available and the political economy that it is associated with each one. It presents a number of fascinating case studies from around the world- from countries as varied as The Netherlands, India, Mexico, Japan and the Philipines all written by local climate and economic experts. Climate Change is giving rise to increasing concern and .scientists are increasingly worried about how to solve this problem and tihs book begins to show readers how renewables really do provide the answers we all so urgently need.
