Energy & Emissions Markets: Collision or Convergence?

"This book is an invaluable resource for all people wishing to enhance their understanding of the new world paradigm, where traditional energy markets and new environmental markets are intrinsically linked. I congratulate the authors for their well-informed, insightful and valuable contribution to the debate... In years to come, I would expect every student of economics and environmental issues to have a copy of this book. It demonstrates how market based mechanisms can protect our environment and ensure economic prosperity  which, ultimately, will help to safeguard the future for our children and generations to come." - Robert Casamento, Head of Climate Change Services, Deloitte & Touche LLP, Members of the Advisory Board, GLOBE Legislators & Business Leaders G8 + 5 Climate Change Dialogue, Special Advisor G8 CEO Roundtable on Climate Change

"As more and more industries are changing because of their carbon footprint or other climate, emission or energy related issues, it is important to understand the core themes, regulatory framework and opportunities that form this new business paradigm. Energy & Emissions Markets: Collision or Convergence? Is a complete reference book and includes descriptions of relevant and diverse aspects of risk, which reach well beyond the energy and emissions trading markets." - Matthias Knab, Director, Opalesque Ltd.

"This exceptionally readable reference is deeply informative about the history of the nascent global  green house gas markets. Peter Fusaro and Tom James lay  out the evolution and history of the US SO2 and NOx markets - Underappreciated as models of the cap and trade markets emerging under the Kyoto Protocol. The author who coined the term "Green Trading: articulates the history and evolution of the increasing global sensitivity to greenhouse  gases, and how that will be manifested by most efficiently in trading mechanisms. This book is a convenient way to become aware of the Key issues gathering in our communal future as well as providing a detailed understanding of methods used to manage it." - Mark Cox, CIO, New Energy Fund

"Increasing awareness of the environment is both corporate and financial Concern along with the current energy "boom" and emergence of regional markets for a variety of emissions such as CO2 , SOx and Nox. The complex interplay between energy and environment has become a significant issue for governments, corporations and the individual citizen. The authors have written the definitive book to explore these issues and explain this complexity for all. With the prospect of global carbon and perhaps other environmental markets rapidly becoming achievable in the short-term, This book offers both an educational and insightful perspective into how this will all play out." - Dr. Gary Vasey, Chief Operating Officer, Energy & Environment Capital Management LLC
