Handbook of Global Energy Policy

Edited by Andreas Goldthau, Wiley Wiley Handbook Global Energy Policy coverBlackwell, London 2013, 568 pages

This is the first handbook to provide a global policy perspective on energy, bringing together a diverse range of international energy issues in one volume. It:

  • maps the emerging field of global energy policy both for scholars and practitioners; the focus is on global issues, but it also explores the regional impact of international energy policies
  • accounts for the multi-faceted nature of global energy policy challenges and broadens discussions of these beyond the prevalent debates about oil supply
  • analyzes global energy policy challenges across the dimensions of markets, development, sustainability, and security, and identifies key global policy challenges for the future
  • comprises newly-commissioned research by an international team of scholars and energy policy practitioners


“New technologies and social pressures are transforming the world’s energy markets. Andreas Goldthau makes sense of this shifting landscape in this invaluable new Handbook on global energy policy. It offers the big picture as well as excellent new essays focused on key topics oil exploration and production contracts, fiscal regimes for natural resource exporters, and the emerging tensions between food and the production of biofuels. Particularly interesting is the Handbook’s treatment of emerging topics in the global natural gas industry and the possible future roles for renewable energy supplies. Throughout it is balanced and well-informed.”—David Victor, University of California, San Diego
