About this book

Introduction

This book provides an introduction to energy economics. It shows how to apply general economic theory as well as empirical and advanced econometric methods to explain the drivers of energy markets and their development. Readers learn about the specific properties of energy markets as well as the physical, technological, environmental, and geopolitical particularities of energy sources and products. The book covers all types of energy markets, ranging from liquid fuels, gaseous fuels, and solid fuels to electricity. It also addresses emission allowances, energy efficiency, and nuclear risks. The authors discuss the engineering properties of energy technologies including renewables, the economics of natural resources and environmental protection, market liberalization, and energy trade as well as the experience of the German energy transformation. This book will serve students as a textbook and practitioners as a reference for their understanding of energy markets and their development

Reviews

“This book provides a broad approach to energy economics that, while theoretically based, focuses on empirical results. … the chapters in the book are fairly stand-alone, with little integration between. … For practitioners or students who are looking for stand alone reference chapters on major energy economic topics, this may be a good choice.” (Janie M. Chermak, The Energy Journal, Vol. 40 (6), 2019)
