Environmental Risk Mitigation: Coaxing a Market in the by Barbara Weiss, Michiyo Obi

By Barbara Weiss, Michiyo Obi

This e-book provides an in depth overview of the context and an research of the marketplace for fresh power applied sciences, with batteries because the fundamental case learn. the focal point of this e-book is on fresh power know-how and specifically, on renewable power and transportable, cellular and desk bound battery and effort offer. The authors learn how successfully nations with huge and complicated economies are construction and coaxing the markets had to successfully mitigate environmental danger. The research takes a country-level point of view of a few of the most important and so much technologically complicated economies on this planet together with China, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, the uk and the USA. The authors discover the measures being taken to foster markets that successfully decrease environmental danger, bring up its resilience or even its restoration. within the concluding bankruptcy, the authors recommend that whereas the marketplace for environmental danger mitigation continues to be nascent, the prospect for its quick improvement is excessive. a few industry coaxing mechanisms to advertise its extra swift improvement are proposed. The booklet might be of curiosity to researchers, coverage makers, company strategists, and lecturers within the fields of political technological know-how and enterprise management.

In conclusion, the cumulative environmental risk posed by China, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, the UK and the USA is very high. The outward peaks in the ERI suggest these seven countries pose significant risks in the areas of energy usage, GHG emissions and motor vehicle prevalence in the right side of the figure and an unsustainable level of water usage in the left side of the figure. These seven countries have consistently been the biggest consumers, producers, emitters, respectively. 0 level of risk, the seven countries are among largest producers of electricity.

3 Renewable Energy (RE) indicators—2012 Source: Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), International Energy Agency (IEA), 4/03/15 3 Economic Growth, Technological Development... 43 Germany’s domestic energy use in the first quarter of 2014, spiking to as high as 74 percent on May 11, 2014 (Lovins, 6/28/14). Almost a quarter of the German population lived in so-called 100 percent RE regions by 2013 (REN21, 6/04/14). In terms of the total energy produced (TEP) and total primary energy supplied (TPES), however, the RE share averaged much lower than the world average in 2012.

The dip of the line into the column depicting Korea’s CCM technology patents also appears to suggest a greater emphasis on CCM research than on environmental sustainability research in Korea during the period measured. Lowering GHG emissions to mitigate environmental risk is part of a larger discussion of the energy system decarbonization and lowering the carbon intensity of global GDP. The so-called green economy requires technological innovation (EEA (EU), 7/29/12). Advances in the availability and the cost of a wide array of low-carbon technologies underpin long-term decarbonization (IEA, 11/20/14).
