About this product
- DescriptionThis book breaks new ground in the studies of green transition. It frames the ongoing transformation in terms of a battle of modernities with the emerging vision of ecomodernity as the final destination. It also offers a systematic exploration of the potential for extensive transformation of carbon-intensive sectors - with a focus on energy and transport - towards a low or post-carbon ecomy. The book does so in a comparative perspective, by pointing to a diversity of tech-ecomic and institutional solutions in the mature Western ecomies, and in the rapidly growing East and developing South. The contributors highlight a broad spectrum of available alternatives as well as illuminate conflicting interests involved. They also demonstrate how solutions to the climate challenge require parallel techlogical and governance invation. The book advocates a new, overarching vision and agenda of ecomodernity - based on a synergistic paradigm-shift in industry, politics and culture - to trigger and sustain the ecological invation necessary to tip development in a green direction. This vision cant be molithic; rather, it should reflect the diverse interests and conditions of the global population. This book is aimed at researchers and postgraduate students of energy, transport, environmental and climate policies, as well as development, environment, invation and sustainability.
