Overview

Global warming due to fossil fuel consumption is recognized as the major environmental challenge of the 21st Century. Successfully reversing this global crisis requires that the fastest growing economies of the world - primarily in Asia - significantly and successfully deploy renewable energy sources. This book documents how six developing Asian countries are taking head on electric power development and global warming issues with successful alternative energy programs.

As the world looks to transition into new sources of fuel, this book should be a top-read for utility managers, energy professionals, independent power developers and university professors.

Features & benefits:

• Provides a template for nations, policymakers, international investors, and developers to consult to to implement renewable energy in the economies where it is most essential.

• Covers hot-button issues of global warming, renewable energy, and international development in an easy-to-read format.

• Includes more than 20 comparative tables and a conclusion of the best practices for renewable energy programs.

• List of acronyms, abbreviations, and definitions used in the text.
