Towards a Green Energy Economy?

Mundaca, Luis LU and Neij, Lena LU (2014) In Klimat i Fokus (Climate in focus)
Abstract
The global financial crisis provided an opportunity for countries to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels. Green energy technologies were heavily promoted as a way to reinvigorate economies, create jobs and reduce CO2 emissions. However, despite multiple policy efforts, data show that emissions continue to rise. The limited progress made in many parts of the world has been insufficient to offset the negative effects of economic growth, increased consumption and fossil-based energy use.
