About the book

Energy is a vital element in sustaining our modern society but the future of energy is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous; especially when faced with continuous drive to ensuring a sustained and equitable access and mounting pressures to reduce its emissions. Traditional views of energy technology have always been in isolation where each solution’s development are distinct and unique. However, we cannot afford to work in silos any longer. Future energy systems and their relationship with society and the environment will have to be designed, planned, developed, commissioned, and operated alongside and within contemporary geo-political, ethical, and socio-economic contexts. This has posed an unprecedented volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA), where systemic and holistic approaches are often warranted. This book aims to focus on the VUCA of addressing the future of energy and environment by considering contemporary issues and insights from diverse contexts, viewed as a system, and anchored upon emerging and smart energy technologies.
