Energy policy a factor of power and economic growth, Dr Lorenc Gordani, 22th October 2017 [metaslider id=11349] Our energy system is on the brink of a revolution! Climate change imposes an increasingly binding constraint on the use of fossil fuels. Even, the fossil fuel-based energy has been such a powerful engine of growth, the above transition is an “golden” opportunity for a “green growth” through a development of new forms of economy that are self-resource efficient, oriented toward a proactive consume, clean and protective of the natural environment, etc. Afford of such challenges by public authorities request a long sight looking integrated approach: the energy assets are long-lived, that makes necessary the start decarbonizing of the energy systems early! Anticipating a future carbon constraint is often cheaper than risking stranded…
