Handbook of Energy Economics and Policy presents energy engineers and energy managers with analytical skills and concepts that enables them to apply simple economic logic to understand the interrelations between energy technologies, economics, regulation and governance of the industry, as well as environmental aspects related to energy use. The first of its three parts introduces the fundamentals of energy industries. It includes origins, types and measurement of energy sources, transportation networks, and regulatory and policy issues on electricity and gas at a global level. New economic and policy issues are examined in section two. After exploring the general features of innovation processes in the energy industry, it discusses the economics and policy implications of intermittent renewable sources and energy storage technologies. The role of energy system in the wider economy is examined with focus on tools and policies for financing the green transition, geopolitics of sustainable energy sources, and the integration of energy, climate and macroeconomic policies. The final section offers an introduction to state-of-the-art methods for modeling and predicting the dynamics of energy systems. This includes agent-based simulation, forecasting of energy prices and volumes, energy systems analytics, and big data. Its unique approach and learning path makes this Handbook of Energy Economics and Policy an ideal resource for energy engineering practitioners and researchers working to design, develop, plan or deploy energy systems. Graduate students and instructors in energy courses have in this book a useful learning/teaching resource that includes tests, exercises and case studies from around the world. Energy planners and policy makers will find a solid foundation on which to base their decisions Presents key-concepts and their interrelation with energy technologies and systems in a clear way for ready application during planning and deployment of energy technologies and systems Includes global case studies covering a wide array of energy sources and regulatory models Explores methodologies for modeling and forecasting the impacts of energy technologies and systems, as well as their costs and possible business models
