Beschreibung

Alberta, one of the largest energy producers in the world, is responsible for almost one-third of the total Canadian anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These GHG emissions may be contributing to the current climate change and are caused mainly by the fossil fuel combustion and fugitive sources. The Alberta Ministry of Environment has set up a provincial climate change strategy to reduce GHG emissions. To assess this strategy, this book analyzes the international and Albertan energy markets; the energy research & development efforts of selected countries, companies, and the province itself. In addition, Daniel Schoerling evaluates GHG emission reduction technologies and policies in the field of electricity generation, oil & gas production, and transportation relevant to Alberta and ready for short and mid-term implementation. This book concludes with profound policy-related recommendations how Alberta can achieve a sustainable reduction in GHG emissions. Schoerling s provocative and pragmatic book was written to help policy makers, managers, and people interested in sustainable energy policy to understand and better manage the challenges caused by climate change.
