9781783471553

Mine and Andrzej Ancygier’s book chapter “Poland at the renewable energy policy crossroads – an incongruent Europeanization?” has been published in the book “A Guide to EU Renewable Energy Policy. Comparing Europeanization and Domestic Policy Change in EU Member States” by Edward Elgar Publishing (2017, pp. 183-203).

About the book from the publisher’s website:

“This book is a guide for understanding the EU renewable energy policy as one of the most ambitious attempts world-wide to facilitate a transition towards more sustainable energy systems. It contains key case studies for understanding how member states have shaped the EU renewable energy policy, how the EU has affected the policies of its member states and how renewable energy policies have diffused horizontally. An analysis of the external dimension of the EU renewable energy policy is also included.”

Book chapter on Polish energy and climate policy

My book chapter “Poland’s Clash Over Energy and Climate Policy: Green Economy or Grey Status Quo?” has been published in the book “The European Union in International Climate Change Politics. Still Taking a Lead?” edited by Rüdiger K. W. Wurzel, James Connely and Duncan Liefferink. More informatione here.

Workshop: “Still Taking a Lead? The European Union in International Climate Change Politics” in Hull on 24-25 September 2015

I took part in the workshop via phone conference. The title of my presentation and draft chapter title for the planned book publication is “Green economy or grey status quo – a Polish clash over climate and energy policy”.

The workshop was organised by the Centre for European Union Studies (CEUS) at the Univeristy of Hull on 24-25 September in Hull in Great Britain.

The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the draft chapters for an edited book publication “Still Taking a Lead? The European Union in International Climate Change Politics”. The book is going to be edited by Rüdiger Wurzel and James Connelly (both Hull University) and will be published probably next year.

Book chapter on German policy support mechanism for photovoltaics

Palgrave-cover

My book chapter “The German Policy Support Mechanism fpr Photovoltaics: The Road to Grid Parity” was published in Moe, Espen and Midford, Paul (eds.), “The Political Economy of Renewable Energy and Energy Security. Common Challenges and National Responses in Japan, China and Northern Europe”, Palgrave Macmillan, pp. 258-275.

From the book description:

Bringing together renewable energy and energy security, the authors cover both the politics and political economy of renewables and energy security and analyzes renewable technologies in some of the most relevant and topical parts of the world. Japan is energy-scarce and still experiencing the aftermath of Fukushima. China is expanding its renewable energy capacity faster than any other country. Northern Europe has long been among the most progressive regions with respect to renewables – boasting Denmark and Germany, front-runners in wind and solar energy solutions – but also home to petroleum-based economies like Norway. By comparing and contrasting the experiences of such a diverse range of countries, this book identifies both barriers and success factors and explains why some countries have been so much more successful than others when it comes to renewable energy.
