This new title addresses one of the most talked-about sectors of recent times. Undoubtedly, there are political, technical, economic, commercial and legal challenges to meeting global, regional and domestic renewable, carbon and energy-efficiency targets. However, tremendous opportunities are open to those who understand the industry and its drivers.

Featuring contributions by thought leaders in their fields from both the public and private sectors, this forthcoming book guides readers through key policy matters, broader challenges and future trends, all of which underpin the current and future direction of this sector. There is analysis of issues for financiers, risk identification, allocation and management and project structuring, with in-depth guidance on each.

Given the diversity of technologies, specific chapters are dedicated to providing technical, commercial and legal guidance on wind, solar, hydro, embedded generation, biofuels/biomass, tidal, wave and renewable gas. Finally, the book considers clean coal technologies and carbon capture and storage which, although not renewable projects, have an important role to play in reducing global emissions and preserving a diversified fuel source mix.

This book is aimed at those among the business community who want to understand how this sector will impact on their business, whether they be corporates, project developers, financiers or economists.
