Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Consumption: The Rebound Effectby H. Herring
Pub. Date: 01/01/2009
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan UK
This book challenges conventional wisdom by showing how, in some circumstances, improved energy efficiency may increase energy consumption. Relying upon energy efficiency to reduce carbon emissions could therefore be misguided. This book explores the broader implications for climate change and sustainable consumption.
