Narratives of low-carbon transitions: understanding risks and uncertainties

Narratives of Low-Carbon Transitions: Understanding Risks and Uncertainties presents case studies that illustrate the complexities involved with moving toward lower-carbon energy sources. The book aims to enhance understanding of both the benefits and risks of such transitions. Greater understanding of these issues is needed to guide successful implementation of comprehensive transition pathways, and, ultimately, to lead to sustainable social and environmental outcomes. The case studies in the book are presented as narratives that draw on stakeholder-driven research efforts. These case studies, set in a wide variety of development contexts worldwide, examine both the supply and demand sides of energy transitions, and interactions with other sectors, among them, industrial production, transport, building, and behaviour patterns at household and individual levels.
