Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Energy in Asia presents a comprehensive review of the unprecedented growth of Asian energy over the past quarter of a century. It provides insightful analysis into variation across the continent, whilst highlighting areas of cross-learning and regional cooperation between the developed and developing countries of Asia. Prepared by a team of leading international experts, this book not only captures the East Asian domination, particularly that of China, but also highlights the growing influence of South Asia and the ASEAN.

Organised into four parts, the sections include:

  • the demand for energy in the region and its main drivers at the sector level;
  • developments in energy supply, including fossil fuels and renewable energy sources;
  • energy policies and issues such as sector reform and climate change;
  • the transition to a low carbon pathway.

This handbook offers a complete picture of Asian energy, covering supply and demand, as well as contemporary challenges in the sector. As such, it is a valuable resource for students and scholars of energy policy, Environmental Studies, and Asian Studies.
