Saving Energy

The world economy has experienced substantial growth since World War II thanks to the wide availability of fossil fuels, which have been used without paying much attention to their corresponding scarcity constraints and environmental impact. Today we are obliged to conserve these sources and rethink our choices regarding energy supplies. This books leads readers on a voyage through the world of energy and consumer technologies; helps them understand how to limit the cost of energy for families, businesses, and the public sector; explains strategies that would allow our economy to improve energy efficiency without compromising economic growth.

Arturo Lorenzoni teaches Energy Economics at the University of Padua and works at the Luigi Bocconi University's Centre for Research on Energy and Environmental Economics and Policy (IEFE).
